We both remembered the movie "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" and how Jimmy Stewart's character actually does filibuster to prevent a bill from moving forward - he reads books and keeps talking the whole time. Her filibuster reading list would be "The Hobbit". I chose "Jane Eyre". Then we realized the Lord of the Rings trilogy would be even better.
But the best idea we had to read for a filibuster was The List of Reasons that I am Awesome. A start below:
- I am me.
- I have wavy hair.
- My thumbs bend backwards.
- I can sing the National Anthem.
- I like tea.
- I know the names of the Seven Dwarfs.
- Who wouldn't want to be me?
