Status Quo Preserved

As you likely know by now, a group of Republicans and Democrats have made a deal to preserve the Senate filibuster on judicial nominations. As is to be expected,Confirm Them has a boatload of analysis. Sierra Faith is doing yeoman's work on rounding up the reaction from the right side of the blogosphere. The general response, with some exception, is very negative.

My analysis: A group of Republicans are very afraid that someday, perhaps, maybe, possibly, enough judges who didn't drink the kool-aid in law school on Roe v. Wade may actually throw the issue of abortion back to the political process where it belongs. That possibility, however slight, is much more terrifying to those Republicans than any other issue they can think of. They reacted accordingly.
