Come on, folks, I am very disappointed that nobody else wants to discuss what to me seems a huge story, that of a Republican senator apparently blackballing (okay, blue-slipping) a Republican president’s nominee for a high profile ambasssadorship — especially when I tried to make my comments on the matter so provocative. If somebody as eminent as Professor Glendon is blocked due to sheer pique, to me that represents EVERYTHING that has gone wrong with the Republican Party and the conservative movement: Pettiness, self-absorption, lack of statesmanship, random (rather than well-thought-out) lack of party discipline…. all sorts of things.
