This will have to be a drive-by fisking as I'm working on this week's Blog Mart.
Fortunately, it's all too easy.
Get a dictionary
I was so surprised to see the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee -- all voting the party line, as usual -- castigating their Democratic colleagues for voting the party line. Seems that when the Democrats do it, it's called partisanship, but when Republicans do it, it's just called being right.
What will the next sound bite be?

Well, Wayne, it appears that the next soundbite will be: "Seems that when the Democrats do it, it's called partisanship, but when Republicans do it, it's just called being right."
To illustrate the Dem's unprecedented douchebagginess - and the Republican's relative deference to the president's Supreme Court nominees - when it comes to partisanship, let's flashback to the Clinton appointees:
In 1993 the senate confirmed former ACLU moonbat Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the Court 96-3. Hint: there were more than 3 Republicans in the Senate at the time (I believe there were even more than 8).
In 1994, Justice Stephen "Foreign Law Should Have Precedential Value" Breyer was confirmed 87-9 by the Senate. Hint: There were a lot more than 8 Republicans in the Senate at the time. They may have even had enough to pull off a filibuster.
Take your "partisanship" whining and blow it out your butt. Your guys are being intransigent dickweeds, not ours. So shove it.
