That was then, this is now.

The Washington Times has a great editorial pointing out the dems hypocrisy concerning the filibuster. Senator Joe (I plagiarize) Biden even argued on the senate floor that all judicial nominations should receive an up or down vote. Here's what he said on the senate floor in 1997.

"[I]t is totally appropriate for any U.S. senator to voice his or her opposition to any nominee for the court ...But I also respectfully suggest that everyone who is nominated is entitled to have a shot, to have a hearing and to have a shot to be heard on the floor and have a vote on the floor...It is totally appropriate for Republicans to reject every single nominee if they want to. That is within their right. But it is not . . . appropriate not to have hearings on them, not to bring them to the floor and not to allow a vote."
