Republicans vs. the Constitution: "We have the votes." 

Of course, that's what they would say, but that's what they're saying:

"There's no doubt in my mind, and I'm a pretty good counter of votes ... that we have the votes we need," Senate Majority Whip Mitch McConnell of Kentucky told CBS's "Face the Nation."
(via AP)

Meanwhile, it looks like Broder's "Bend over, Dems" column was a plant or a trial balloon:

Joe Biden, appearing on ABC's "This Week," said, "I think we should compromise and say to them that we're willing to -- of the seven judges -- we'll let a number of them go through, the two most extreme not go through and put off this vote" to end the filibuster.

And Frist engages in doubleplusgood doublethink:

Frist said emotions "are running high on both sides," and that "there is a need for more civility in political life."

The Senate Republican leader said, "I've been trying to work out a compromise," but "it's not easy."

Right. civil.

First, Frist claims Christ died for the Republican Party, then he calls for more civility.

Fuck Frist and the whores he rode in on.
