    "Democrats" in the US Senate.  It is always OK for the Republicans to block a Democratic president's appointees to anything, but never never OK for Democratic Senators to block a complete asshole appointee of a Republican president.

    Which really makes you question what's going on. Our president, for example, as a US Senator, could have readily prevented what is going on with the court today, by insisting on less far right appointees by "W". ANY Democratic US Senator could have done so after 2006.  Easily.  

    But Democratic US Senators were more than happy to allow Roberts' and Alito's ascension to the Court.
