You get results like this: a person whose qualifications are not in doubt but who once criticized a potential supreme court nominee’s judicial philosophy is blocked.   Translation: you were mean to my friend and now you can’t come to the ninth circuit you big jerk!

Hypocrisy update.  I know.  You’re shocked.

Liz Cheney doesn’t have a lot of faith in American institutions.  Her organization’s most recent attempt to slime justice department lawyers who sought to do their job in the face of her father’s ideology and the administration’s obstruction are beyond the pale.   And someone should tell her so instead of kissing her ring.  Former solicitor general under Bush and Cheney Ted Olsen had this to say about Guantanamo lawyers three years ago.  It’s worth noting this man lost his wife on September 11, 2001.
