Born at the Crest of the Empire

Saturday, June 06, 2009


In 2005, (Senate Minority Leader) McConnell demanded an up-or-down vote on President Bush’s judicial nominees, arguing that “regardless of party, any president’s judicial nominees, after full debate, deserve a simple up-or-down vote.”

McConnell said Republicans would not be bound to that position this time around.

I'm waiting for someone to put together the video of all the Republican Senators then saying "up or down vote" against their comments now. There are enough of them that a filibuster effort will turn into Republican mockery.

(Again, I maintain that in this era of readily available web video, the game has changed. Old comments are a much heavier anchor in the era of "then and now" video that can be produced by almost anyone.)


  • Made me think of today: June 6th.

    Least we forget
    Bound to repeat History.
    Etc, etc....

    Old sayings have their place.

    Keep reminding the American people. The political attention span of Americans is short.

    I wrote a post for D-Day if you want to check it out.
