Setting the Record Straight on Filibusters:

Some have argued that if judicial filibusters are ended, the Senate will turn into a rubber stamp or a banana republic. That is quite a conclusion to draw. Judicial filibusters were unknown for more than two centuries. Was the Senate a banana republic for all that time? Is filibustering nominees and denying the full Senate a confirmation vote the way the Senate can avoid being a rubber stamp?

To require an extra-constitutional threshold of 60 votes for confirmation disturbs a fundamental balance between the Executive and the Senate and creates a strong potential for excess by the minority. A minority may hold hostage the nomination process, threatening to filibuster any appointment that does not meet particular ideological or litmus tests. The concept that a duly elected Executive shall nominate, subject to majority consent and general political accountability, will be turned on its head by allowing the minority a filibuster-veto in the confirmation process, and the principle of checks and balances will be damaged.
