Democrats Suggest "Solving" Judicial-Appointments Impasse
— Ace

...by ways that seem, coincidentally I'm sure, to reduce the President's power to nominate judges of his choosing.

Meanwhile, the GOP is making noises that they really intend to go "nuclear" on this issue, once and for all.

You can tell they're serious, because they're offering a new, friendlier term in place of "nuclear option" -- "constitutional option." Gee, that makes opposing it sound frankly unamerican!

It's good they're changing the lingo. To me, that says they're not thinking of this as a threat anymore but as a tactic they might want to employ.

When they start calling it the "happytime family-values aren't-dogs-cute option," then we'll know they have the votes to pass it.

1 You could call the show "Cyber Dicks" to give it a little noir feel, and there are lots of plays on the name considering the dual Olbermann Almost Gay/Moore Weird Whackoff Material theme.

2 I am on Bill Frist's mailing list and his emails are getting angrier and angrier over the Democrats holding up the judges.

Nuclear is not the right word. We are talking H-Bomb here folks.

3 But the Republican threat to neuter long-cherished filibuster rules by steamrolling Democrats is risky — so potentially destructive that Capitol Hill calls it the "nuclear option." Democratic retaliation would be swift and long-lasting, raising the prospect of escalating clashes in a body that prides itself on gentility and cool judgment.


Waitaminute.... I could have sworn I read a story in the paper a couple of months ago about how Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer used the "Nuclear Option" to break the Republican Filibuster on a poison-pill amendment (to permanently renew the Assault Weapons Ban) to the Gun Maker's Protection Act (which effectively killed the bill).



So why is it just keen when the Democrats use it for their pet issues, but if the Republicans even bring it up, "Democratic retaliation would be swift and long-lasting"?

4 The threatened Democratic retaliation -- obstructing literally everything with an avalanche of one-man procedural votes -- is Karl Rove's wet dream. Remember how well shutting things down worked for Newt et al.? Yeah.
