As the GOP prepares a mass filibuster of Obama's court nominees and the democrats scurry to see if they have enough votes to go with the nuclear option, it is pretty fun to read ancient news articles, like this one from 2005, to see how some of the same players as today, were talking about judicial filibusters back then.

The surprising thing is that a lot of these funny old positions on the judicial filibuster issue are still on the Senators' official web sites. Maybe they think if they scrub their site of their former position, it will just draw attention to their shifting views on the subject. Maybe they are right.
