Tennesseans for the Constitution? Not quite...

I happened across the website of a group, Tennesseans for the Constitution, that some of you might want to take a look at. Why? Because it is extremely funny! For a good laugh at the expense of some "non-partisans" and excellent examples of spinning an issue that would make James Carville proud, I certainly recommend the site.

The best part - this group is centered on saving the filibuster. Get it? The Tennesseans for the Constitution have dedicated their mission to saving a procedural rule not found in the U.S. Constitution! Perhaps it is time for a name change, because the constitutional arguments certainly favor those who are for a reinstatement of actual filibusters or other options that allow for actual advising and consenting.

MORE: For further debunking of the liberal romance with the filibuster, check out Pejman Yousefzadeh's post on Pejmanesque as to how the history of the Abe Fortas "filibuster" is being wrongly represented by the Left (and by the Left, I mean the L.A. Times). On the same subject, Professor Bainbridge and Patterico chime in with more fisking of the Fortas filibuster story.
