That's what it's there for

Many denouncements and much drama in the Senate over politically-motivated amendments to bills. Including undoing it later, taking it all back, etc. And among other things, it turns out to be against Senate rules to describe an amendment as politically motivated.

Last time I checked, the Senate was a political body.

Doesn't trying to remove politics from a political body rather defeat the purpose? If not miss the point completely?

There I go, trying to be logical again...
