Here come (some of) the judges

Well, I guess I'm mostly glad that the filibuster compromise happened, even though it's still a pretty bad deal that three crazily ideological hard-right judges now have what amounts to a lock on lifetime federal court appointments. I mean, that is what compromises are -- things in which both sides don't get everything they want. But it is the first time the evangelical wackjobs in the GOP have been basically told to chill, would you chill already? by party moderates, and that is a good thing.

However, I do have one request, and that is this:

I don't believe I had ever heard the phrase "up or down vote" until quite recently, and I am already done with hearing it. Could everyone in the world please never ever use it again? Thank you.

Well, you know, some people like the phrase and some people don't. Perhaps if a majority decide they don't like it, we can claim that its use is unconstitional. Or if a majority decide they like it, we can make it mandatory.

There are no other options.

I plan to use the phrase as much as possible at the business meeting
