Senate ends filibuster of Brown

From LifeNews:

The Senate has ended its two year long filibuster against pro-life appeals court nominee Janice Rogers Brown. The vote sets up a final confirmation vote on her appointment to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, regarded as the nation's second highest court.

The Senate voted 65 to 32 to end the filibuster after a bipartisan group of lawmakers reached a deal last month to end the filibusters and allow votes on some of the president's judicial appointments.

A final floor vote on Brown's nomination is expected Wednesday.

Uh, didn't they promise to do that like a week or so ago? Oh, wait, those were Democrats “promising” something. At least this time they actually did, eventually, keep their promise, which is a big change. I also find it interesting that one of their ranting complaints about Brown is that she's supposedly racist against Blacks (she is Black, BTW) which means that the Liberal definition of racism as not being applied to Blacks must mean only Liberal Blacks. It's so hard trying to keep up with their silly definitions, y'know.
