I really liked what Rush had to say here......
I know they say there are new rules making a filibuster harder, but so what? And don't tell me that it's not "practical" anymore, because people have to go to the bathroom. That's nothing new.
Force them to get out there and filibuster this eminently qualified man, as rated unanimously by the American Bar Association. Miguel Estrada is just a name to us, but his life is being destroyed here. It's not because he's unqualified; it's because Democrats don't like how he might think. Read George Will's column. Chuck Schumer didn't bother to ask Estrada a single question. He claims not to know any less qualified judge, when in fact he knows less qualified judges who went to the Supreme Court! Just this week, President Bush pledged to stand by Estrada until he was sworn in. We know no other nominee has been asked to give nor should give opinions on issues that may come before the court. Their job is to apply the law, not to make law or let their opinions get in the way of rulings.

Who are you going to believe? Rush or Hatch and Santorum?
Both Hatch and Santorum called Rush and stated that FNC got the story wrong...
Rush himself stated he felt relieved...
You were here on FR when it all came down and now you post this?
Again, though the point is that Rush's story was WRONG, and it was already proven wrong before he ran with it.
