Discussion: Filibuster Deal

Here’s a copy of the filibuster deal brokered yesterday. Check it out.

I think it basically amounts to leaving us where we were before, except now the wingnuts get a couple of their judges. In return, we get the right to invoke a filibuster for awhile longer…until we actually try to use it, at which point we’ll probably end up toe-to-toe over the issue once again. Clearly, the best part of the deal for us is that the Freepers are going ballistic, but like I said last night, I’m not sure that will be enough to make up for the inevitably radicalization of our judiciary.

What do you think?
