I just watched Jerilyn Merritt of talkleft.com make a ridiculous claim on MSNBC. She stated that the Senate's role in judicial nominations is "advise and consent", and not a rubber stamp. Which is correct of course. She then said that when President Bush states that his judges ought to get an "up or down" vote, that he is saying that the Senate should rubber stamp his judicial nominations.
That's objectively false, Jerilyn, and you know it.
It is no longer funny watching Democrats invent these ludicrous ways of trying to claim that denying a full Senate vote on confirmations is itself "advise and consent". The dishonesty is palpable.
