(Conservative Writer's) Quote of the Day

Andrew Sullivan on the fillibuster crisis:

"Like an increasingly bitter family argument, neither side seems able to do what they used to do: come up with less polarising nominees or agree to let some candidates through, while quietly ditching the others. In the past few weeks, several deals have been floated to avoid a drastic piece of legislative precedent. But none has endured. It has become all or nothing.

And so the pressure builds. What’s remarkable is that nobody knows quite how the battle will play out. To make matters more dramatic, the Democrats are threatening essentially to shut down parliamentary debate on legislation if the judicial filibuster is abolished. And looming behind all this is the prospect of two Supreme Court vacancies that could open up as early as next month.

If the judicial filibuster is abolished, Bush may have the option of nominating far more conservative justices than he might otherwise have — and the entire future of America’s culture wars could be resolved in favour of the religious right. So the fight could affect American politics for decades."
