Gee, you guys are dumb

Hacked by partisans.

Reports of Mr. Olson's candidacy suggested that President Bush, in choosing the third attorney general of his presidency, might defy calls from Democrats and choose another Republican who is considered a staunch partisan to lead the Justice Department.
"Clearly if you made a list of consensus nominees, Olson wouldn't appear on that list," said Senator Charles E. Schumer, the New York Democrat who led the Judiciary Committee effort to relieve Mr. Gonzalez. "My hope is that the White House would seek some kind of candidate who would be broadly acceptable."
My hope was that you guys showed something vaguely resembling a backbone against ScAlito, Johnny Reb and AbuG in order to set a precedent that you weren't, in fact, the party of gutless clowns. Too late now. Why?
Aides to Mr. Bush are calculating that Democrats, who spent months clamoring for Mr. Gonzalez's ouster, will pay a political price if they try to block confirmation of a new attorney general. The thinking inside the White House is that Democrats cannot call for new leadership at the Justice Department, then block it.
Bingo! Getting called names by Very Serious People hurts!
Mr. Leahy said in a statement this week that he wanted the White House to find a nominee with "a proven track record of independence to ensure that he or she will act as an independent check on this administration's expansive claims of virtually unlimited executive power."
Watch out, Rip Van Winkle. Your sleep record is in jeopardy.

"Evil will always triumph because good is dumb!"

Late afternoon update:
Bwahahahahahaha! I'll believe it when I see it.

The Republican National Convention. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.
