Today in the Washington Examiner I urge the GOP senators to fight harder for judges.Â After I wrote it, but before it was published, Chairman Leahy wrote a supercilious, F-you letter to the GOP, noted here. In short, he says he will do exactly what my column said was likely: Ignore all protocol and shaft the GOP even on judges that do have their “blue slips” from both home-state senators, while confirming nominees the GOP never really wanted in the first place. My column explains why the GOP should fight, and why it would win.
