The nominations process is absurd
This list of nominees the Senate confirmed before adjourning last night mainly makes clear how insane it is for the Senate to be considering so many nominees. Is there really some pressing reason for Joe Lieberman to weigh in on every member of the Mississippi River Commission? Does Richard Lugar truly have so much to say about the board of directors for the State Justice Institute ("established by Federal law in 1984 to award grants to improve the quality of justice in State courts")? Does the deputy commissioner for Social Security really need to be confirmed by the whole Senate? What are we worried would happen if the Senate merely confirmed his boss?
