“Coup Against the Constitution”

George Will, too, weighs in on the Estrada filibuster. He both eviscerates the Democrats’ arguments and puts the issue in Constitutional perspective:
“If Senate rules, exploited by an anti-constitutional minority, are allowed to trump the Constitution’s text and two centuries of practice, the Senate’s power to consent to judicial nominations will have become a Senate right to require a 60-vote supermajority for confirmations. By thus nullifying the president’s power to shape the judiciary, the Democratic Party will wield a presidential power without having won a presidential election.”
