Frist ready to go nuclear? – “Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is all but certain to press for a rule change that would ban filibusters of judicial nominations in the next few weeks, despite misgivings by some of his fellow Republicans and a possible Democratic backlash that could paralyze the chamber, close associates said yesterday.” (Via Wes Roth).
After unconstitutionally blocking judicial nominees, the Democrats seem to think that Americans will respond to the “unchecked power” argument, throwing in Tom DeLay for good measure. I think they’re preaching to the Michael Moore/MoveOn wing of their party. We’ll see.
