Quote of the Day, I Guess Slate Thinks That I’m An Extremist, Then edition.

Because while I guess that this is supposed to alarm people about the implications of the filibuster

…picture a federal appellate bench composed of numerous Antonin Scalias and Clarence Thomases…

…’alarm’ would not be the verb that I would have used.  Try ‘reassure.’ Or even ‘fill with anticipatory glee.’

PS: Slate, despite its delusions, is not particularly centrist.  If it were it’d be more pro-gun, more pro-life, and arguably more pro-Israel.

  1. If you ask them, they’ll tell you that they have no assumptions, that all their stances are based upon pragmatism.
    They might even invoke the phrase “year zero” while doing so.

  2. On the one hand I agree with you Moe, but on the gripping hand, now that the filibuster can be changed at the whim of the majority, any majority party can just pass legislation incressing the number of judges that sit on a court. It is called ‘court stacking’ and this tit-for-tat can go back and forth until there is just chaos.
    Now I am Chaotic Good, but a chaotic oligarchy (see: Venezuela) is not good chaos in my eyes. True freedom (good chaos) flows from a small, restrained, and moral government ruled by law. I know that seems ironic, but I dare anyone to argue differently.
