PeeDee on Filibuster

Shorter Cleveland PeeDee opinion : The judicial nominees went to law schools, so vote.

The complaint that the filibuster is undemocractic is meaningless. So is the electoral college, having two Senators per state rather than basing it on population numbers, ad naseum. Claiming that getting rid of it is a "Constitutional Option" is somewhat true in that the Senate gets to make it's own rules according to the constitution. But since it gets to make it's own rules, then keeping the filibuster as it is is equally constitutional. I guess Frist et al just wanted put the word "Constitution" behind their point of view as sounds sexier. On that note, I would henceforth like to be known as "The Handsomer than Brad Pitt" blogger.
