Democrats Have Absolutely No Sense of Self-Awareness

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy is bitching about Republicans allegedly "stonewalling" the confirmation hearings of unqualified ideological hacks like Goodwin Liu (who actually deserves to be filibustered). Leahy, of course, is ignoring the indisputable fact that Obama court nominees are getting hearings at a much faster rate than Bush nominees ever did. The craphead from Vermont (what is it with that state? - see, e.g., Howard Dean and Bernie Sanders) also doesn't seem to remember that he was instrumental in delaying the hearings of several Bush nominees, and voted to filibuster the nominations of Miguel Estrada and Samuel Alito.

So the only I thing I can take away from the hypocritical bloviations of Dems like Patrick Leahy is that they either have no sense of self-awareness, or they're counting on all of us to basically be stupid and not have a memory. Or perhaps it's a combination of both.
