Frist F*ck

Wonkette alerted me to this story (second item) from The Hill about pro-filibuster activism at Princeton. It seems a group of liberal-minded students are taking turns speechifying (or just reading aloud) as a protest against the Senate Republican leadership's proposal to eliminate the 60-vote requirement to consent to presidential judicial nominees. Their chosen venue, outside the Frist Campus Center (paid for by donations from the majority leader's family), has attracted national media attention, including a location shoot for Hardball with Chris Matthews.
