Darn It! This Equipment Is Expensive!
Pat Leahy just broke my Irony Detector. We may have a real humor blackout here until it is fixed. (YES, this is a new development, I resent that "what else is new" guff). Anyway, the killer quote came here, in response to a Bush plan to change the judicial confirmation process
"Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., in a Friday letter to the president, complained that the White House has chosen to "politicize" the judicial selection process to "create a partisan campaign issue."
Uhh, here in my section of the time warp, keeping control of the Senate in order to rein in Bush's judicial selections is one of, if not the, central motivators of the Dem side in this election. Is that not partisan, or am I confused?
And have we not moved past this idea that politics should not be "politicized" or "partisan"? Oh, forget it.
