We told you so, Lindsey

Sen. Lindsey Graham is shocked (shocked!) that governance under mister self-proclaimed bi-partisan, the Light-Bringing unicorn rider Obama, has been less than bipartisan w.r.t. HR-1...

But Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said he knows bipartisanship when he sees it, and he didn’t see it. Graham was a member of the “Gang of 14” that took heat from both parties in 2005 for negotiating a compromise on judicial nominations.

“If this is going to be bipartisanship, the country's screwed,” Graham said.

The bill, he said, was rammed through the House, where it got no Republican votes. He said the Senate committee markups were perfunctory.

We all told you and Senator Maverick that you were selling yourselves cheap. Now our judicial nominations go by the wayside and Dem governance will install all the mini-Ginsburgs they can find without us having jack squat to say about it.

"Screwed" indeed.

The anti-stimulus vote had more Democrats than the pro-vote had Republicans. Clearly we're the ones who weren't playing cricket.
