That about sums it up

Republicans remain determined to prove that government doesn't work by trying to make sure nothing works...so they can blame Obama in 2014 and stay in control of the government they make sure does not work. Awesome. Booman sums up the idiocy in regard to Hegel:
Filibustering a major cabinet position like State or Defense would be unprecedented. The reasoning is just plain nuts. There are currently 12 Jewish Senators (all Democrats) who are all going to vote for Hagel's confirmation, yet we're supposed to believe that some Presbyterian yahoo from Oklahoma [James Inhofe] knows better than they do who is and is not a friend of Israel? A man whose main accomplishment in life has been to drive the Quaker Life Insurance Company into bankruptcy and liquidation? A man so deep in the pockets of Big Oil that he's been calling climate change a hoax since 2003? A man who is such a reckless pilot that one man complained to the FAA, “I’ve got over 50 years flying, three tours of Vietnam, and I can assure you I have never seen such a reckless disregard for human life in my life. Something needs to be done. This guy is famous for these violations.”
