The Argument for Obstruction


Al Meyerhoff, formerly of the Natural Resources Defense Council and now a trial attorney at the notorious  firm of Lerach Coughlin Stoia, makes the case for Democratic obstruction of Bush’s remaining appellate nominees in the Legal Times.  There’s not much to Meyerhoff’s argument beyond “they did it too,” and complaints that a majority of sitting federal judges were nominated by Republicans.  (Well, what do you expect when there have been Republican Presidents making nominations for 20 of the last 32 years?)
