Beware the backdoor filibuste

News & Politics

"Mark my words... this Terri Schiavo nightmare has been a wonderful mask for something very serious going on right now--the Senate is trying to get rid of the filibuster so they can stuff the federal courts with an assortment of racists, Jeebus freaks, and all-around woman-haters that the Shrub wants to appoint." (Peek reader Fred Pierre noted this as well). Amanda speculates further that perhaps DeLay was even meant to take the fall in exchange for future spoils... Do something about it. (Pandagon)
