Partisan Democrats Delay Rice's Nomination

Dr. Rice's nomination for Secretary of State was delayed yesterday with a democrat filibuster which threatened to keep the congress from attending last night inauguration events. The sickening part of this is that while all the dems concede that Dr. Rice will be easily confirmed, they just wanted to hear their voices for a few more hours:

Senate Democrats objected to a full Senate vote on Thursday, saying they wanted more time for floor speeches.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada raised the objection, saying Democrats needed four and a half hours to speak on the matter.

And as to the Democrat's willingness to work in a bipartisan manner, this pretty much sums it up:

While acknowledging that Rice will be confirmed eventually, some Democrats want to show they are ready to fight the president in his second term -- amid grumbling that party leaders did not stand up to Bush in his first term.

So we see that the blowhards from the left are willing to delay the inevitable so they can enjoy the sound of their own pieholes for nine more hours. Ih this case the left has truly lived op to being the party of the ass.
