In or out…up down…whatever.
The dreaded return of the up or down vote:
Republicans sounded relieved to be rid of the Miers appointment, which collapsed last week after it became clear she faced an uphill climb in winning confirmation.
“Let’s give Judge Alito a fair up-or-down vote, not left or right,” said Sen. John Thune, R-S.D.
He was one of several Republicans to say so, and there was irony in that.
Remember: up and down for boys…in and out for girls.
Unless you’re doing the reverse cowgirl in which the girl gets to do all the work while you watch SportsCenter.
