Brett Marston has a rather lengthy defense of the status quo with regard to the judicial confirmation process. His defense, by his own admission, isn’t really a defense–merely a statement that the process as it now exists isn’t particularly shocking, as there is a long history of stalled nominees, and that most of the people complaining are doing so out of self interest. Probably true. I still think it’s a broken system, as I noted a while back.
