    Let's see, my previous three tries to post included none of the following -
    "name-calling, epithets, racial slurs, obscenity, vulgarity and/or profanity, inappropriate use of punctuation, ALL CAPS SHOUTING and/or incoherent, Link to another website, commercial promotion, or comment intended to provoke or inappropriately address other readers by name."

    Considering this, I can only assume that my factual criticisms of Judge Nuffer, and observation that calling him "uncontroversial" is incorrect, is considered a "personal attack." So... I can't tell you why I object to Nuffer. Sorry about that.

    I love how the agreement they reached in Bush's 2nd term to avoid filibusters of judicial nominees except for extraordinary circumstances has somehow vanished. Hypocrites.

    Lee and Hatch can push this harder, but they are part of the ongoing refusal of Senate Republicans to block confirmations. There are a lot of nominations that are being held up by the GOP, not just these. These two Senators are astoundingly hypocritical.

    The president nominates the judges. Obviously that has already happened. The senate is the group that is holding everything up and has been for a long time. Obviously, the democrats will support a judge nominated by Obama, that goes without saying. So the reality is that senate republicans are the ones who have been holding up all of the nominations.
