I was so wanting to give McConnell an “attaboy”....but I suppose that I’ll be denied that small pleasure.
McConnell is almost as imposing as Boehner is.
OK, but what OTHER cabinet level positions have been held back by filibuster when the Dems were opposing GOP apointees. Can anyone think of any?
The most famous rejection of my life was Judge Bork for the Supreme Court, but he did get an up-or-down vote by the full Senate and lost 58 to 42. It's interesting to look at the Republicans who voted against him. Every one of them were horrible RINOs and two eventually switched parties.
Thank god that the Tea Party is now around to primary suckers like this out of their jobs.
