Empty Barrels Make The Most Noise

So Jon Kyl says Republicans will probably filibuster anyone Obama nominates to the Supreme Court. I especially liked this part:

KYL: It would — it will all depend on what kind of a person it is. […]

I want a judge who will read the law and declare it in each case that comes before him or her as it should be — in other words, don’t have somebody coming in with preconceived attitudes — I’m going to be tough on the executive, or, I’m going to be for the little guy, or whatever their preconceived attitudes are. We’ve had too much of that. […]

I think the president will nominate a qualified person. I hope, however, he does not nominate an overly ideological person. That will be the test. And if he doesn’t nominate someone who is overly ideological, I don’t think — you may see Republicans voting against the nominee, but I don’t think you’ll see them engage in a filibuster.

Do they have balls, or what? Don’t nominate anyone with a particular slant – unless they’re slanted in our direction! Hypocrite.

  1. Don’t worry, Obama doesn’t nominate liberal or if he does, he doesn’t fight for them. As for the Talibans, no surprises there.

    Obama should go with a minority, such as an Hispanic or Black. This makes life more difficult for the Talibans (not much).
