Now that I've reduced its rotational momentum,

the spin of the filibuster compromise has lost its power.

(CAFTA post will be tomorrow. I had this one already written and telegraphed to the blog printer, and I intend to be involved in a heterosexual marriage eventually, so I didn't feel like writing for an hour.)

If the GOP plays this right, (punintentional - get it? pun unintentional? so many levels of punditry) this "compromise" will be a large victory in the war of attrition. Here's the ideal scenario, which gains probability because it assumes optimal strategy by the Democrats:

1) Three "extremist" judges confirmed, apparently against the principles of the Dems.
2) Another judge nominated.
3) Judge confirmed.
4) Repeat steps 2 and 3 until Left's base starts to cry and burn flags
5) Another Judge nominated.
6) Judge filibustered.
7) Repeat steps 5 and 6 until public becomes outraged and RINOs agree to vote nuclear. Supposedly, the compromise means the Dems would be able to filibuster some judges. The president can nominate a very large number of judges. Eventually, the vacant slots will be filled.

That might take more than 4 years, so.... oh well, the judiciary's not that important anyway. At least, it's not supposed to be.
