Is the fillibuster constitutonal?

leave a comment »

With thanks to Brad Delong: A recent op-ed article has asserted that the filibuster, as currently written in the Senate rules, is unconstitutional, against the framers intent, or both. The article has the unfortunate style of most writing by those with legal training, circuitous and prolix. Like Jon Stewart’s interview with John Yoo, this article makes me want to stick my head in ice water.
