WASHINGTON, Nov. 2 — The confirmation of Michael B. Mukasey as attorney general appeared to be all but certain on Friday after two key Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee announced they would support the nomination despite complaints over Mr. Mukasey’s refusal to clarify his views on what amounts to torture.
The announcements by the senators, Dianne Feinstein of California and Charles E. Schumer of New York, came after Mr. Schumer met with the nominee on Friday afternoon and said he had obtained Mr. Mukasey’s promise to enforce laws that banned any of the harsh interrogation methods known to have been used on Qaeda terrorists after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
Ugh, Feinstein, how have you forgotten so badly where you come from? This guy is almost as bad an Gonzalez, and you're going to confirm him? I'm disgusted. My dad, when he was in college, he CAMPAIGNED for Feinstein. And lately, I don't know who the fuck she thinks she's representing, but it's not California.
