We’re sure you all read James Taranto’s Best of the Web already (and, if not, why in the name of Scylla and Charybdis’ veterinarian don’t you?), so this is hardly news to any of you, but we still want it up here for the record, lest it gets lost in the memory hole:

President Bush resorted to an old political trick this week, using recess appointments to evade Senate confirmation votes that he was sure to lose. . . .

The most bitterly resented but least important appointment sent Sam Fox, a major Republican donor, to Belgium as ambassador. Mr. Fox contributed $50,000 to Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, a group whose vicious ads during the 2004 campaign lied about Senator John Kerry’s war record and helped win President Bush a second term. It is common for administrations to reward big donors with ambassadorships. But this appointment is a deliberate thumb in the eye of Senator Kerry and fellow Democrats who were poised to reject the nominee. . . .

With nominees of such dubious merit, it is no wonder that Mr. Bush resorted to an end run around the Senate. The American public will almost certainly pay the price.

As Mr Taranto points out, Bush was in no way “sure to lose” the confirmation vote, since two Democrat Senators, Lieberman and McCaskill, had already stated that they’d vote for Mr Fox if only the Democrats in charge of the committee would let it get to the floor which they, of course, wouldn’t have, regardless of Mr Fox’s qualification. He had been mean to John Fuckface Kerry, after all.

It’s also interesting to see how the New York Slimes slander the Swifties by stating, for the record, that they “lied” about Hanoi John when, in fact, no evidence of such has ever been found. Speaking of which, how many years are we up to in our running count of “how long since Fuckface Johnny promised to release his records?”

Oh, and is slandering people by calling them liars legal? The Swifties might want to talk to their lawyers. Sulzbarfer Jr still has some money left, we believe, so it might even be worth it.

But none of this is the point of this post, really. This is: Notice how the DNC’s wholly owned affiliate, the New York Slimes, are all up in arms about “the old political trick” of recess appointments and how “the American public will almost certainly pay the price” for this “end run around the Senate?” The Democrats are already babbling about the legality of it too, and will undoubtedly waste millions trying to prove that it isn’t.

Well, let’s go back in time then, to June 5, 1999, on the same editorial page of the same “newspaper”:

President Clinton took an appropriate stand against bigotry yesterday by giving James Hormel a recess appointment as the nation’s Ambassador to Luxembourg. Mr. Hormel’s nomination had been blocked for 20 months by a handful of Senate Republicans disturbed by his sexual orientation.

The credentials of Mr. Hormel, heir to a meat-packing fortune and a former dean at the University of Chicago Law School who has been active in civic, educational and political causes, were not the sticking point. There were sufficient Senate votes to confirm him had Trent Lott, the Senate majority leader, allowed a vote. . . .

Under the constitutional provision that allows Presidents to bypass the confirmation process when Congress is in recess, Mr. Hormel can remain as Ambassador until late next year. His shameful treatment by Mr. Lott and his G.O.P. colleagues will be remembered long beyond that.

“Appropriate stand”, “the credentials of Mr. Hormel … were not the sticking point”, “sufficient Senate votes to confirm had Trent Lott … allowed a vote”, “shameful treatment.”

Ahhh… Those double standards. When Democrats do it, the New York Slimes have spontaneous, synchronized, multiple orgasms, but when Republicans do the same… Well it’s nothing short of a CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY AND THE CONSTITUTION!!!1!

But His Majesty will be sure to remind the world about Mr Hormel’s recess appointment every time the Dhimmicrats scream about Mr Fox’s ditto.

Count on it.

    In this case, I don’t believe it is barratry if I second that.

    And since when is being sent to Belgium some sort of reward?

    It is apparent that they just don’t get it.

    How critical could the position of Ambasador to Belgium be, anyway?

    And since when are Republican’s not allowed to make political contributions to whomever we bloody damn want to? The proper response to John F’n al-Kerry’s questions about the Swift Boat Veterans is “I fail to see how that could possibly be any of your damn business, Senator.”

    Oh yeah, Sire. Has anybody out there compiled these examples of their hypocrisy, so that we’ll have a websource to either study or immediately access, when they(which they undoubtedly will) start their p&m? We know they squawk when we do the things they’ve always done to get around the majority opinion. Truth hurts, let’s show them pain.

    Let’s see how this could have been publish by an un-biased fish wrapper, shall we?

    Mr. Fox’s nomination had been blocked before by a handful of Senate Democrats disturbed by his political orientation.

    I say that Dhimmicrats are Republiphobes. When can we start writing “hate crime legislation” to end this continual victimization of “people of alternative political lifestyles” by the inTolerant LefTards™?

    Fox is also going to be a non-paid ambassador, but the dems think they have found regulations which say there can be no unpaid volunteers in that capacity.

    Great invective your Majesty, but referring to the esteemed junior senator from Massachusetts as fuckface is a little over the top, unless of course you are referring to anal sex with a sharpei, not that there is anything wrong with that.

    Please forgive my simplicity of mind, but does this not all fall under: Bush=Hitler, No Blood for Oil, Republicans killed black people by using their weather control device to incarnate hurricane Katrina, everything other than socialist utopia must be investigated, vast right-wing conspiracy, and about 100 or so other catch phrases the leftoids spew via the media? I’m just too damned tired to argue these points with those on the left that come unarmed to a battle of wits. I wish the repubs, and/or those on the right would finally argue back with logic, facts and reason rather than sit there and take it and look stupid….It’s the same leftist drivel and buzzwords over and over, uncontested by the right. Jeeze, all those words and I never even got around to the NY Slimes. I AM tired of arguing the left’s obvious BS while my side (supposed conservatives) do nothing in response.
    This stuff isn’t just a story cuz’ of lefty actions but also because of the right’s lack of response.
    Geez, guys, sorry for that verbose rant, but it seems like every story for many years now has been the same: Leftys whine, Rightys lack spine…
    We all here seem to know the real story. Thank god for the internet; maybe some of those in charge will eventually get a clue– and I won’t need to ramble endlessly like this….
    (Thanks for indulging me..)

    Hardly, isn’t that the non-country that just enacted the BBQ Grill Warming Tax™? (yes I know this one is under suspicion, but it’s too good to leave alone)

    The American public will almost certainly pay the price.

    2112, my reason for wanting the compilation is to provide a segway into that reasoned conversation. They start driveling on about whichever thing “we” did, and we can come back with well-what-about. From there we can shift into wouldn’t it work better if?
