The Hypocrisy Of Politicking

Politics is a funny business. What goes around, usually comes around. What is interesting isn't that this is the case, it is how it is spun to perceive a different case.

In 2002, Democrats destroyed the nomination of a Republican to the U.S. Court of Appeals. The filibuster of Miguel Estrada was monumental and historic. He would have been a stepping stone away from becoming the first Hispanic nominated to the Supreme Court. Now, those same Democrats are riding the bandwagon of being responsible for nominating the first Hispanic to the Supreme Court. They are also attacking any Republican who threatens to block that nomination. Can you say hypocritical?

Although it is from a left perspective, here is a link to commentary that sheds some light on the subject.
