Well, the nuclear option was invoked on Supreme Court nominees. I'll get around to writing about something other than the filibuster shortly (really, there are other things to talk about?). But a round-up of some filibuster-related links for now:
Fred Barnes on how Chuck Schumer tried to cut a deal to confirm Gorsuch and keep the filibuster.
61 Senators sign a letter to defend legislative filibuster.
Ed Whelan notes that we should not overstate the number of Republican filibusters of Obama nominees.
