Theocons Hate the Filibuster Deal

The theocons, who hoped to eliminate the filibuster so they could push through judges more to their liking, are not happy with yesterday's deal from the group of 14. But Bill Frist certainly covered his base, at least in the eyes of James Dobson:
We are grateful to Majority Leader Frist for courageously fighting to defend the vital principle of basic fairness. That principle has now gone down to defeat. We share the disappointment, outrage and sense of abandonment felt by millions of conservative Americans who helped put Republicans in power last November. I am certain that these voters will remember both Democrats and Republicans who betrayed their trust.
Gary Bauer is similarly unhappy with the deal:
The Republicans who lent their names to this travesty have undercut their President as well as millions of their most loyal voters. Shame on them all.
Here's a PDF of the deal via Senator Byrd.
