    I listened to a little of the back and forth banter between Byrd and Frist today on this subject on C-Span. All I can say is I'd never make a politician, because after listening to only fifteen minutes of Byrd, I wanted to knock the old babbling fool out.

    I think in this case, and when it comes to dealing with militant liberals that will stop at NOTHING to further their agenda, and to halt the progress of the conservatives, the conservatives are going to have to do what they have to do. Liberals play dirty and never look back. I'm not saying we should stoop to their level, but we need to deal with these "minority" liberals any way we need to.

    When fillibusters are legal to be used, whatever.

    You must have missed the part where never before in the history of America has a fillibuster been used in this circumstance of judicial appointees. I guess you believe liberals can fight dirty and change the rules but God forbid conservatives do that.

    Just another example of liberal double standards. "Do as we say, not as we do".

    An attempted filibuster is not a filibuster. Hence, a filibuster has never been used to block a judicial nominee.

    I still say that they need to go back to the old school filibuster rules. Quorum calls and iron lungs. No bathrooms, no breaks, no surrendur, and an immediate vote as soon as they let the floor go.

    he voted for it, which means that he used it and approved of its use. You've seen his quote, i've posted it many times. he's a hypocrite for denouncing it now.
