An open letter to Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Senator Michael S. Lee (R-UT):
Jon Mott

Sigh. There’s nothing in the constitution demanding immediate approval of a president’s court appointments, or even an immediate hearing. If so, please tell it to Judge Bork who was, um, … Borked… and those nominees Sen. Biden held up when the Democrats were in opposition. The high and mighty language in this letter, and on every TV channel, is tedious. Fair or not, this is neither “new” nor is it uniquely partisan.
