I take issue with Jane Galt's premise that power grabs are necessarily devoid of principle, and with her blurring of the important distinction between judicial and legislative filibusters. Hair-splitting or not, the fact that the Constitution spells out when two-thirds majorities are required ought to count for something. Reasonable people can disagree on how far to go in protecting minority prerogatives in the Senate or elsewhere. Tragically, it seems that Frist and some other Republican leaders are stooping to the histrionic level of Democrats such as Reid and Byrd, rather than acting like a responsible majority should.
