Breaking: Senate confirms Hayden, Kavanaugh

posted at 10:05 am on May 26, 2006 by Allahpundit

78-15 for Hayden as new DCIA, 57-36 for Kavanaugh as the newest judge on the D.C. Circuit. I’ll have both rolls once they’re up.

Video of Hayden setting his agenda for the CIA is here.

Update: Here’s the roll on Kavanaugh. Byrd, Carper, Landrieu, and Nelson from Nebraska voted with the GOP to confirm. Otherwise it was party line.

Update: And here’s the roll on Hayden. Voting no:

Bayh (D-IN)
Cantwell (D-WA)
Clinton (D-NY)
Dayton (D-MN)
Dodd (D-CT)
Dorgan (D-ND)
Durbin (D-IL)
Feingold (D-WI)
Harkin (D-IA)
Kennedy (D-MA)
Kerry (D-MA)
Menendez (D-NJ)
Obama (D-IL)
Specter (R-PA)
Wyden (D-OR)

Quite a few presidential candidates on that list.

So what happened to that whole NSA “wiretapping” thing that Hayden was going to be raked over the coals on?

There was a time at which I’d have been reasonably pleased by all of this.

But with the Senate seemingly intent on giving the country away to Mexico, and the House apparently of the opinion that they are above the law, I’ve about decided that being concerned about who the Senate confirms is an exercise in deck chair rearrangement on the Titanic anyway.

The Republicans have committed political suicide, and there is no organized altertnative available. So the Dems will take over, and in 20 years we’ll all be speaking Spanish anyway. Or banging our heads on a rug five times a day.

Or both.

Toast, I tell you. Toast!

Those efforts have been transfered to another story:
The legal responsibilities of journalists and the Valerie Plame leak!
And how it’s VITAL that leakers of National Security are prosecuted to the Fullest Extent of the Law!
……..more cricketts!

Good luck to General Hayden. With those treasonous swine at the CIA, he is going to need it.

Notice that Specter is the only “Republican” on the list. He is king of the RINOs. He needs to lose his chairmanship.

First mcCain, then Graham, now Spector. What’s next?

I’m surprised Chaffee’s not on the list.

WHAT does Specter have against Hayden? What a kook.

Specter just needs to quit the Republican party. He is an embarrassment to those of us that are conservative.

I’m not at all surprised with those who voted “nay”, even the “Sphincter”.

I hope Hayden can clean out the CIA’s entrenched bureaucrats from way back into the Carter administration to the Clinton holdovers.
