Cheney's Oath to the Constitution 

Paul Horowtiz at PrawfsBlawg has an interesting post about Cheney's responsibilities as President of the Senate and what a ruling on the constitutionalityof the fillibuster would mean, especially since it is almost certainly not going to be reviewed by the courts.

Can Cheney make a ruling that judicial (but not other) fillibusters are unconstitutional without giving reasons? Will he even be challenged on it (preferrably before) by journalists or Democrats? Does partisan opportunity really trump any constitutional obligations?

If you don't know the answer to the last question, you haven't been paying attention.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
