The Republicans sitting on the Senate Judiciary Committee are living down to their reputation in the matter of Professor Liu. It seems that Liu, who is exactly what you would expect from an Obama pick for the Judiciary, chose not to share all of his writings on topics likely to get him in hot water with the American public. As you would expect, the GOP staff easily uncovered these writings and proceeded to share them with the GOP committee members. And the members, being good Republican dolts, alerted the Committee Chairman Patrick 'Gerber Lips" Leahey" that this was cause to delay the hearing. Leahey, being a Democrat just told them to bugger off.
Now if the GOP members on the committee weren't in full time stupid mode, they would have held back and ambushed Liu with his actual record during the hearing. This would prove fatal to his prospects as next affirmative action Justice of the Supreme Court. He wouldn't even have been appointed to the Ninth Circuit.
It's really tortuous watching idiots mismanaging our affairs isn't it?
