Ed at the Captain’s Quarters links Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) who has …..

…written a detailed rebuttal to Robert Byrd’s argument on the Senate floor earlier this week, when (apart from the abhorrent Nazi analogies) the former Klan recruiter took on the mantle of the protector of minority rights. Cornyn demolishes Byrd’s arguments that the GOP’s attempt to change precedent on filibusters has any Hitlerian overtones by pointing out the specifics of when Byrd himself successfully did the same thing.

Good reading.
