My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Salazar Watch

David Harsanyi has the goods on the junior Senator from Colorado. The long and short of it: Senate traditions (of which the Senator has all of two months' experience) are more important than a promise to the people of Colorado.

While campaigning as a pretend moderate before the elections, Salazar maintained that he favored up-or-down votes on judicial candidates.

On Wednesday, however, Salazar apparently changed his mind, held a press conference and proclaimed that he was more interested in protecting "the Senate as an institution."

The good news is that it looks like the real showdown is coming, as the Senate Judiciary Committee has passed out Priscilla Owen and Janice Rogers Brown for consideration by the full Senate.
