Millennials Think Filibustering Is A Sex Act

According to a new survey by Shout Out Uk, around two thirds of young people interviewed think that 'Filibustering' is a sex act.

You rather wonder what younger people think 'Gerrymandering' might be !

Just the thread title has me laughing.

Is gerrymandering used, as a term for biased redistricting, in the UK? I know it comes from a Massachusetts politician, Elbridge Gerry, who redistricted an area of suburban Boston. The new district somewhat resembled a salamander, so this became "Gerry-mander."

Wait till they find out you can stop the filibuster by invoking cloture.
