Filibuster Politics



Text  



The Wall Street Journal makes the case that another judicial filibuster is precisely what Republicans should be hoping for:

Anything is possible, but it’s hard to believe Democrats are nuts enough to launch a judicial filibuster in the middle of an election year with a GOP President so low in the polls. Talk about a get-out-the-vote gift for Republicans. Then again, no one ever got rich overestimating the intelligence of the political class. . . . . A filibuster fight would be exactly the sort of political battle Republicans need to energize conservative voters after their recent months of despond. Senator Schumer, make Bill Frist’s day.
