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.
