Please please please please

Bring em' on!
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Sunday he is prepared to strip Democrats of their to ability to filibuster if they try to stall Samuel Alito's nomination to the Supreme Court.

"The answer is yes," Frist said when asked if he would act to change Senate procedures to restrict a Democratic filibuster. "Supreme Court justice nominees deserve an up-or-down vote, and it would be absolutely wrong to deny him that."
I've written before why I think this is good politics and good policy for the Democrats to filibuster. It's a no-lose that I think the Dems should push to the max.

Will they?

Probably not.....for the usual reason.
