Article 1 Section 5

WTF are those leftist nutjobs talking about?

Unlike Senators Byrd, Reid, and Boxer; I'm sure that you are aware the second paragraph of Article 1 Section 5 of The Constitution of theUnited States reads as follows:

"Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behavior, and, with the Concurrence of two-thirds, expel a Member"
(Emphasis mine)

The practice of the filibuster is not Constitutionally protected. The Senate makes it's own parlimentary rules, as provided by Article 1 Section 5, and the Senate can, by simple majority, change it's own parlimentary rules.

So, when Sheets Byrd and Harry Reid and Babs Boxer (who is quite possibly as stupid as algore) start babbling about how ending the filibuster is somehow changing the Constitution, tell them to STFU and go sit in the corner. It's a Senate rule; not a Constitutional mandate.
