LATE NIGHT MINI-RANT (OR THEY'VE BEEN BLOCKING OBAMA'S NOMINEES HIS ENTIRE PRESIDENCY, WHY WOULD THEY STOP NOW)
If all those who don't like the results of the Republican dominated Congress's hostility to clean energy, choosing diplomacy over war, reducing the percentage of the budget spent on over priced and unneeded military hardware, raising the minimum wage, etc. etc. etc. had voted, we wouldn't have a Republican dominated Congress and Obama could get a reasonable person nominated and confirmed to replace Scalia (who if you didn't see it, died earlier today). But the Republican leaders and presidential candidates have all vowed to block any attempt to fill Scalia's seat until a new president is sworn in eleven months from now. Totally against everything they claim to stand for, the Constitution, the separation of powers, etc. Hypocrites, as always.
