POLITICS: Filibuster, Damn It!

John Digby has a great post on his blog on why Democrats in the Senate should filibuster the Alito nomination here, (scroll down to the heading Conviction Politics).

Money quote from the post (actually a paraphrase of a Bob Beckel quote):
"Now you know that in this enviroment if a Democratic president nominated a pro-choice, pro-affirmative action, pro-government secrecy judge to the high court that many Republicans would want to filibuster. Sometimes politicans do things out of conviction and many Democrats are supporting a filibuster because they really believe that he should not be on the Supreme Court."
