In the entire history of the republic, only one supreme court nominee has been filibustered. He was corrupt. No supreme court nominee has ever been denied an up or down vote for partisan, ideological, or philosophical reasons. Until now. Republican senators John Kyl and Lamar Alexander are threatening to filibuster Stevens' replacement if they don't like his or her positions. I look forward to the GOP and its Fox overlords explaining why this state of affairs is Obama's fault.
