Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

Don't be tricked
George Mitchell, former Senate Majority Leader, reminds us that filibusters of judicial nonimees have happened many times before, including 1968 when Republicans filibustered an LBJ Supreme Court nominee, and in 2000 when Republicans filibustered 2 Clinton circuit court nominees.
As Mitchell says:
So much for the assertion that filibustering to prevent votes on judicial nominees is a new tactic invented by Senate Democrats.
Have Republicans gone mad? Are they really this drunk with power?
