A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Harry Reid gets an "F": At least, that's what I'm sure my left-wing high school AP History teacher and former national teacher of the year Myrra Lee would give him for this application of the Constitutional system of checks and balances.


During Tuesday's news conference, Reid also challenged Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., to schedule a vote on the "nuclear option," under which Senate rules would be changed to allow a simple majority vote to stop a filibuster of a judicial nominee. This would mean a filibuster could be ended with 51 votes instead of 60, as in now required.

"We are prepared for a vote on the nuclear option," Reid said. "Democrats will join responsible Republicans in a vote to uphold the constitutional principle of checks and balances."


From the sound of it, you'd think that Republicans were going to vote to abolish the judicial branch altogether.
