      Does anyone out there actually think that if the shoe was on the other foot, and it was Democrats who were doing this, (refusing to confirm a director or agency head that Republicans wanted confirmed), that Republicans wouldn't be raising holy hell about it in the media?

      It's that why with everything. Republicans try to pull evil shit (like Electoral Vote scams) and Democrats and the Corporate Media don't say squat.

      •  They're ultimately protected by the electorates (0+ / 0-)

        that put and keep them in office.  We can safely predict that Mitch McConnell will be re-elected by the good people of Kentucky.  

        The elevation of appearance over substance, of celebrity over character, of short term gains over lasting achievement displays a poverty of ambition. It distracts you from what's truly important. - Barack Obama
