Look on his works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Texas Sen. John Cornyn is threatening "World War III" if Democrats try to seat Al Franken in the Senate before Norm Coleman can pursue his case through the federal courts.
Cornyn, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, acknowledges that a federal challenge to November's elections could take "years" to resolve. But he's adamant that Coleman deserves that chance -- even if it means Minnesota is short a senator for the duration.
This comes at the same time as Cornyn's demand for a complete change in the district court nominations process
to suit his whims. I just have one question about this: When exactly did the chairmanship of the NRSC become such a powerful position? I mean, who knew so much hung on his re-election last year?

Cornyn: No one's happy with the way things are being done in Washington - not Republicans, not Democrats, not me. There's too much petty squabbling while major problems aren't getting fixed. Shortsighted, is what I'd call it.
Yes, please stop the shortsighted petty squabbling.
The strange thing is he was actually a good attorney general and the only explanation for the metamorphasis is he hit K Street and went nuts.
Kay Bailey Hutchison of course already knew everyone on K Street. Or should that be her husband did?
In any case, the word nuts best describes him. It's a word a growing number of Republicans are even using.
