It’s been a while since I’ve checked out Jacob’s blog; I hope he keeps it up when he moves up to UM-Flint.
Anyway, he had a pretty interesting link there, Filibuster Frist @ Princeton University. It’s a protest against the senate majority leader and his threat to use the so-called “nuclear option” when it comes to filibusters against judges. Current events has this about Bush’s yet to be confirmed judges for various federal courts, but the real fight here is for the future Supreme Court appointments.
Two interesting facts about the Tennessee senator, heart surgeon, and possible future presidential candidate: Frist was a member of the 1974 Princeton graduating class, and the protest is taking place in front of the Frist Campus Center, a building sponsored by the senator’s family.
I can see the campaign slogan now:
Bill Frist: country doctor for president. Jeesh.
