FAMILY HACK COUNCIL

The Family Research Council, the Christian Wingnut group behind last weekend's "Justice Sunday" event, is the main organization working with Senator FristChrist to implement the "nuclear constitutional freedom option" to eliminate the ability to filibuster judicial nominees in the Senate. Obviously the FRC has a hardline position against filibusters.

Er, no.

MSNBC's Keith Olbermann noted a couple days ago that the FRC vigorously defended the filibuster in the past. Guess who was President then. First name: Bill.

And if you were interested, they supported the Republican filibuster (and threats of filibuster) of the nomination of James Hormel to the pivotal position of Ambassador to Luxembourg. Hormel, as you may recall, is gay.
