Redefining Gridlock

This Washington Times editorial gives the real numbers on the senate's inexcusable inaction on Bush nominees for judicial posts.

A sample statement:

During his first year in office, Mr. Bush made 32 percent more appeals court nominations than his three predecessors' average, yet his confirmation rate was more than 70 percent less. And this disparity continues into his second year, with just three appeals court nominees confirmed all year and none in two months.

There's all sorts of juicy goodness in the article. Read it, and then pressure your senators (especially if they are Democrats) to stop stalling.
