  •  "Illegal Nominations"? There is no such thing!! (6+ / 0-)

    The Republicans might be able to make an argument that the recess appointments were illegal, thanks to our now thoroughly corrupt, right-wing judiciary. But there is a big, and very obvious (to any 10 year old with a functioning brain and a dictionary) difference between an APPOINTMENT and a NOMINATION. The President of The United States can nominate whomever the fuck he wants.

    I challenge Le Turtle or any of his turtle acolytes to find any law or legal opinion anywhere that defines an illegal nomination.

    Question: Have Harry and the craven Democrats even pointed this out? Or do we now allow the Republicans to simply make up whatever absolute nonsense they want without calling bullshit? Le Turtle bluffs and blusters precisely because he know he WON'T get called on it.
