Volokh has some good comments about Sen. Schumer et.al. who have decided to stop all Bush judicial appointments. While the Volokh article addresses that turnabout is fair play, I don't think they really appreciate that hypocrisy is an asset for the Democrats.
As my wife (The Good Democrat) said when I asked if those who thought divided government was such a good thing would support a Republican House or Senate, she said no, "That divided government is only good for Republicans." "Democrats know how to run a government."
Ah life. Ain't it grand?
