Frist to Use Nuclear Option for Alito?

This from Newsmax.

Just my take, but if Senator Frist is too frightened to enact the "nuclear" or "constitutional" option in response to a fillibuster of Samuel Alito, then he will be too afraid to ever do it. The conservative wing of the Republican Party has been speaking loudly and clearly on this issue, and it will not be pacified by more gutless gestures of bi-partisanship. This across the aisle handshaking has been doing nothing but granting undeserved power to the liberal Democrat Party--power that was not granted to them by the voters in election cycle after cycle.

So, Dr. Frist, it is time to walk the walk as well as talk the talk. It is time to call the bluff of the blustering democrats and change Senate rules.

In fact, if Senate democrats start threatening fillibuster, change the rules IMMEDIATELY! Don't wait. Remove from them the instrument of their leverage. Then we will see who has the power.

Just don't force me to watch a whimpering Chuck Schumer as he drags his toys home to New York.
