Ok, this is the new rule:
Republican Presidents aren't allowed to nominate anyone for anything if that nominee actually agrees with the President about anything.
Somehow I don't remember Bill Clinton nominating anyone of the right-wing persuasion for anything, but the Senate Democrats didn't seem to have a problem with that, and the Republicans never filibustered those nominations.
In fact I keep hearing about a bunch of idiotic judicial rulings coming down from Clinton appointees.
And does anyone care to discuss Madeline Halfwit Albright as Ambassador to the U.N.? This woman (with help from Jimmy Carter) created the North Korean crisis and is directly responsible for the lack of any response to terrorists in the 90's. Not to mention helping to create the atmosphere in the U.N where the oil-for-food scandal erupted. She was in so far over her head that she couldn't see daylight.
But John Bolton isn't qualified because he's a meanie!
Will the Democrats ever get any grown-ups in their party?
