Never underestimate the ignorance of the common man. When it comes to filibustering conservative judicial nominees, the Democrats don’t. Against all Senate history, a minority of pro-abortion extremists is stopping well-qualified men and women from getting an up or down vote in the Senate (sometimes largely because of their faith). When the Republicans complain and say they will disallow filibusters on nominees, the Democrats threaten to shut down the Senate, and they call the Republicans the extremists. Due to Democratic chutzpah, Republican fumbling, and common ignorance, those who want to keep conservative jurists off the federal bench appear to be getting away with it.
