I Agree: "Why the 'Silent' Filibuster Is Unconstitutional"

I certainly think that having the filibuster is a good idea. However, I agree with the Atlantic in thinking that I rather doubt that the Founding Fathers meant for the filibuster to evolve into the utterly painless procedure that it has become, essentially requiring a super-majority of at least 60 votes in the Senate in order to do anything at all. If the minority is going to mount a filibuster, they should at least have to work a bit for it.
