Presidential election year = no government?

So, when your senator Schumer, and Obama and Biden said in 2006 that they wouldn't confirm any more Bush appointees to the Supreme Court, that was ok? I love Jewish Democrats, they're second only to Jewish Stalinists with their self-delusion.

Point taken. But it would be proper for the Senate to hold hearings, at least, even if they vote not to confirm.

why? Why go to the time or expense if they're not going to hold a vote. There is no obligation to hold a vote.

And that's from the reliably liberal Washington Post.

Humm, that's another interesting point.

The Court can still function. It just means that when there is a 4-4 tie, the lower court's ruling gets upheld (though the ruling has no precedential value). I suppose this is mildly annoying in that lower courts will occasionally not get as much guidance as would be ideal, but the system still functions.
