DC Circuit Vacancies

Norm Ornstein, a congressional expert at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, told TPM that the GOP's mass filibuster of D.C. Circuit nominees is unprecedented and an attempt at "nullification." If Republicans don't let up, he said, then "then I don't see much other choice" for Democrats other than to go nuclear.
No no. Both sides are at fault! Like the NLRB business, this is worse than usual. When something imperfect like filibusters are used, best not to be really stupid and corrupt.
