Nathan Newman takes note of the GOP's, ah, evolving standards when it comes to
rubber-stamping approving Republican judicial nominees:
[T]he GOP didn't want to allow discussion of character in the case of Clarence Thomas, and they don't want discussion of legal philosophy in the case of Estrada. So basically, they don't want discussion of any Republican nominees' credentials at all.
Which is why they aren't getting a vote either.
