A substitute term for filibuster.
The Tarantino kills bills.
Rachel Maddow suggested a new name for 'filibuster', as it was considered to be a boring, put-you-to-sleep term.
Used in a sentence, "The Senate was able to bring a health care reform bill to the floor only to have it die at the hands of the minority who invoked "The Tarantino."

(Used with all due respect to the acclaimed director.)
