    Republican Hypocrisy and Borking Elena Kagan

    During the Bush Administration, there was a huge outcry by Republican Senators, who had the majority at the time, railing against Democratic techniques to hold up judicial nominees.  Only the concerted efforts of a group of “moderates” on both sides avoided the dreaded “nuclear option.”    Today, the roles are reversed and Republicans have resorted to the very tactics they objected to on the part of | Read More »
