THERE'S A FILIBUSTER COMPROMISE, but John Hinderaker is deeply disappointed.

UPDATE: Stephen Bainbridge is happy. Ed Morrissey is not.

As I've said before, I'd probably care more about this issue if Bush looked likely to appoint some small-government libertarian types to the bench. Since he doesn't, I don't.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Some people are saying I told you so. "I said they didn't have the votes on 29 April. The hard core Republicans need to be nicer to the RINOs. They aren't going anywhere without them."

MORE: Hugh Hewitt is happy that Nan Aron is unhappy. Crooks and Liars has a video roundup.
