The rules, defended

Via Josh Marshall, the Princeton students celebrate the victory for the filibuster. But, in doing so, they say what no media seems willing to say about this whole sham:
That having been said, it is a strange sort of victory, isn't it? If you believe that Senator Frist's nuclear option would have been illegal and unprecedented - as we do, along with many constitutional scholars and political analysts - then the Republican leadership should not have considered it in the first place. Is it a victory when the world is returned to what it should be? Do we celebrate normalcy?Perhaps it's the grey skies of New York that are doing it to me, but it strikes me today that far too much energy is spent on Pyrrhic victories and self-flagellation. What a waste.
