Today's GOP: Stagnation You Can Believe In

Republican legislators are delaying the confirmation of Eric Holder as Attorney General because they are worried that he will prosecute U.S. agents for torture.

(They have expressed no particular concern about U.S. agents engaging in torture.)

Other legislators are delaying the confirmation of environmental nominees Lisa Jackson and Nancy Sutley reportedly as part of a strategy to derail the appointment of Carol Browner to the newly created Climate/Energy czar cabinet position and delay/weaken action against global warming.

Now, I hear they're objecting to Obama's new ethics rules.

Does the GOP think this is the way to win elections? As the pro-torture, anti-environment, anti-ethics party?

Good luck with that, GOP.
