Debunking Marc Ambinder's "Washington Truism"
Ambinder's shortsighted partisan hackery doesn't end there. In acknowledging why people wouldn't want Liu on the bench, he laments that "the prevailing theory that elections have consequences when it comes to judicial nominations is not particularly viable these days." These days? These days? Was Ambinder not around for the Bush years? He should google "Miguel Estrada" and "filibuster" and do some homework. When he is done he can move on to Clarence Thomas and Robert Bork.
This isn't even spin. It is an attempt to rewrite history. Pathetic.
