Okay, so the Senate voted to condemn MoveOn for calling a liar a liar 72-25, voted to condemn Iran 76-22, and today the Senate Rules Committee voted to advance Baron Hans von Spakovsky, a truly horrible man who exemplified the partisan rot at the Justice Department, to the full Senate for confirmation. But without a recommendation, so it’s totally not a cave-in.

My disillusioned prediction is that he’ll be confirmed, oh… 75-23, give or take a few yeas and nays here or there. It just doesn’t matter how godawful the Republican bill or nominee is, roughly half the Democratic caucus will support it. The individual members change from vote to vote, but the total number is always about the same.

However, if von Spakovsky is confirmed with anything less than the 60 votes that are supposedly now required to get anything done, then Harry Reid should be summarily fired as Senate Majority Leader, effective immediately. Not that that would ever happen, of course. The Democratic party establishment never holds anyone accountable for failure. Only the voters do, and only some of the time.
