Damn Dems

Of course they did:

Sens. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) announced this afternoon that they will vote in favor of confirming Michael B. Mukasey as attorney general, effectively ending a growing revolt by fellow Democrats that had threatened Mukasey's confirmation.

By announcing their support, the two Democrats virtually guarantee that Mukasey, with support from the nine Republicans, will be narrowly approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.
It now occurs to me that my immobilizing apathy about this whole nomination process was not just down to my firm belief that Bush would nominate a total douche, but was also the result of a deeply internalized resignation to the certainty of the Dems confirming whatever total douche our supposed-to-be-lame duck of a president offered for consideration.
