Geraghtyites v. Tapscottians
Both are my friends, and rightly influential in the new media.
But I am a Geraghtyite –as one would suspect from the author of Painting the Map Red.
One question for my pal Mark: If the GOP loses three net seats in the Senate (or more), and with it the ability to break filibusters of SCOTUS nominees (or even get them out of a Leahy-chaired Judiciary Committee), will the “message” that you want to send be worth the cost of the postage? When you write that “I am no longer convinced that it makes a sufficiently critical difference in the day-to-day function of government that the Bill Frists, Trent Lotts, Jerry Lewises and Bill Youngs are in control of Congress instead of Harry Reid, Teddy Kennedy and Nancy Pelosi,” have you thought through the implications for SCOTUS?
