  •  Backlash (none)
    If the First-led Senate Republicans are successful in quashing the fiibuster for judicial appointments, I predict a voter backlash against Senate Republicans and all Republicanson a national level.

    I believe they will regret prevailing on this issue.

    •  but in the meantime... (none)
      these incompetent, amoral judges will be doing a  LIFETIME of damage to our country!  Every decision they make will ensure that monied interests will prevail over John Q. Citizen.
      •  Until (none)
        They are impeached.  If they're confirmed tomorrow, I recommend the next piece of homework is to find out exactly where they are and start a massive protest in their jurisdiction to prevent them from even being seated.

        I'm having a hard time believing Frist is actually going to do this.  I'm writing letters to both my (R) Senators right now :-(.  Essentially, I am asking them what the point of Democracy is when 51 people can just decide to ignore the needs of the other 49, and more importantly, how they expect the other 49 to go along quietly.

        •  I agree (none)
          I, too, am having a hard time believing that Frist is going to do this. It's poltical suicide for his long-term career plans, for one.
          •  Yes If (none)
            The electorate is talking about this or pays attention to this. Democrats need to really flood the airways with this from now till Nov 2006 and constantly hammer it and repeat it.
            I have noticed some  ( a lot ) of the people only pay attention to the goings on in Washington ..especially Congress..on even numbered years. ...sadly
