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.
