Roger Pilon at Cato at Liberty:

"And that’s where the hypocrisy comes in: Senate Democrats began judicial filibusters in 2003, when they were in the minority and a Republican was in the White House; they ended the practice when Republicans were in the minority and a Democrat was in the White House. If there’s going to be a rule, it’s got to apply equally—few “meta-rules” are more basic than that."
