Filibuster, huh. yeehaw.

I'm surprised that there is so much effort expended demogoguing the nuclear judge parliamentiary [sic] procedure issue. It's just plain boring. I want judges appointed who follow a logical process of law, as opposed to making the outcome fit their conscience and pass the global test.

I also want free doughnuts to rain from the sky and into small porcelain bowls of gooey hot fudge.

The point is, it's political BS, and the people injecting morality into the debate or claiming a legitimate use for the filibuster are deluding themselves. People claiming a legitimate use for the Senate are a little naive.

The constitution says the senate has powers to advise and consent. The inevitable result is that the Senate will find a way to politicize the judicial selection process. If anything, it should have gotten to this point sooner.

Really, democratic wrangling over judges is probably better, in the long run, than leaving the process to the arbitrary judgement of one man, even if he is the president.
