Irony Continues To Be Dead

It really is amazing the things Republicans can say with a straight face:

The two Republican senators afterward issued a statement promising to “treat the president’s nominee fairly” but warning against “a rush to judgment.” They set down markers for how they expect to debate the nomination once it is made.

“Judges must apply the Constitution and laws even-handedly,” they said. “They should not enter the courtroom with preconceived outcomes in mind, or work to arrive at the preferred result of any president or political party. A Supreme Court justice must not be a rubber stamp or policy arm for any administration.”

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!  They must have their irony gland surgically removed or something.

Bug Or Feature?

Oh noes, Blanche Lincoln’s derivatives bill is being watered down by her fellow Democrats!

I kind of suspect that this was the kabuki plan all along – let Blanche posture and grandstand as some kind of anti-Wall Street crusader to fend off Halter’s primary challenge, but make sure her bill gets watered down substantially by other Senators before it actually comes up for a vote so her generous Wall Street donors don’t get pissed off.

Otherwise I think Blanche would be in the awkward position of having to vote against her own bill…
