15 Feb 2005 Beldar Takes Nuclear Option
Beldar pulls no punches whatsoever writing about Senator Harry Reid, “damned lies” and restoring the constitutional integrity of the judicial nomination process.
I don’t know what percentage of the voting public genuinely understands the Senate’s advice and consent role with respect to judicial nominees in general. But I’m quite sure that only a tiny fraction of the electorate understands that the total number of senators who have successfully colluded to deny an up-or-down vote to President Bush’s nominees could fit comfortably in an average-sized minivan, and would leave the gap between second and third bases empty if they tried to field a baseball team.
Do read the whole thing. The issue, important now, will be even more so soon.
