So What The Hell Was That All About?
Last week, David Hayes was refused confirmation to the position of Deputy Interior Secretary, a job he held in the last Clinton Administration, because Bob Bennett (R-UT) might face a primary and wanted to look tough. A week later, Hayes was confirmed by voice vote. I guess the difference was that Hayes promised to "review" the cancellation of oil and gas leases in Utah that got Bennett all flustered.
Man, these Republicans are whiny ass titty babies.
