Have years of unbreakable filibusters given liberals a false sense of ownership over the courts?

Now that liberals are losing elections in a big way, I think they are starting to feel threatened that their stranglehold on the U.S. Supreme Court and federal courts is coming to an end. For years, they've kept out most conservative judges through unbreakable Congressional filibusters. However, they lost seats in Congress again this year and will likely lose more in 2006. I have no doubt that they are aware of these facts. In editorials, news programs and blogs, they are dreading the ever-increasing possibility of conservative, right-wing judges being appointed to the courts. The way they talk about it, you'd think Republicans were doing something unconstitutional. To them, the only people fit for the appointments are liberal, left-wing judges. I started wondering why they erroneously feel that they own the courts and one possibility I came up with was that they have been spoiled rotten due to these unbreakable filibusters. They've gotten their way for so long that they can't accept anything else. It dumbfounds them.

Of course, the only issue that ever comes up in regards to the appointment of conservative judges is Roe v. Wade. No other issues matter. These people are so dead set on people being allowed to kill unborn children at any time (from conception to seconds before being completely out of the birth canal) for any reason (usually because someone wasn't able to keep it in their pants) that upholding the "right" becomes the only qualification they use to determine who is fit to sit on the bench. How ridiculous is that? The Founding Fathers must be rolling in their graves.
