I WAS GOING TO DO a big post on filibusters, but I really don't have anything to say that I haven't said before. Sorry.
There's a lot of role-reversal going on: The New York Times has switched its position since the 1990s, along with some leading law professors, and Crooks & Liars has some amusing video (here and here), but this seems to me to be a purely political fight, and one I'm not terribly interested in. If I thought that Bush were likely to nominate actual small-government strict constructionists to the Supreme Court, perhaps I'd care more, but I've seen no sign that he's likely to do that.
