Kingsport lawyer on the filibuster debate

In this column from the Kingsport paper, a local lawyer says that the Democratic opposition to judges is not based on antipathy toward religion, that the filibuster is not based on anything in the Constitution, that the filibuster help protect the minority from the majority, that the Democrats are not really treating Bush's nominees worse than the Republican treated Clinton's nominees, and concludes that the Senate ought to debate the nominees and vote on them.
