Shelby Blocks All Obama Nominees

Clearly, this means Obama should reach out to Republicans more.  After all, they do have a 41-59 Senate majority.

The sheer narcissism and nihilism on display shouldn't be surprising to anyone paying attention; at this point, I would expect Republicans to shut the entire country down for the sake of political gain.  What's really funny here is that Shelby appears to be holding out for a pile of pricey earmarks - a $40 billion contract to build air-to-air refueling tankers, an improvised explosive device testing lab for the FBI.

It's good to know the Republicans are fighting for principle.  This year is gonna be sooo much fun.
