    There's no nomination they haven't had a problem with from the Black President. I am sick of Democrats or other good men being shamed from office while the David Vitters get lifetime passes.

    IF Obama gets a better man or woman in that Department, I will be SHOCKED. And oh-so-glad to be wrong. I just don't see it happening. What kind of person do you think the GOPers will actually let serve in that role? A supply-sider who wants to privatize the VA, or some such horse hockey? You betcha.

      Just rational.

      They waved Burwell through because they couldn't afford to obstruct a qualified nominee after coming for Sebelius with pitchforks and torches. Honestly, that surprised me. But I think this could be analogous.

      Also, I could be wrong. ;)

      Almost everything you do will seem insignificant, but it is most important that you do it.

        Now I KNOW I'm dealing with a rational person here. No snark intended, Termite. Only thing left to say is: God help us all.

        Or, for the atheists: Flying Spaghetti Monster, help us all...;-)
