The Early Reaction: Mixed, At Best

John Hinderaker at Power Line doesn't share my enthusiasm for the judicial deal; he says that the Republicans have just postponed the inevitable, in essence. The folks at Red State see things more the way I do:

NOTE...that the three which the Dems most vocally opposed will get a floor vote and will likely pass. After that, the Dems won't have a leg on which to stand with the others which receive floor votes...This deal is bad for conservative activists - but a whole lot worse for the Democrats.
Scared Monkeys joins Power Line in condemning the deal, as does Ramesh Ponnuru. Looks like I'm in the definite minority on this one...
