Allow me to provide some background on this subject. Last Friday, in a Judiciary Comittee hearing called by the Democrats, witnesses gave testimony unrelated to the subject of the hearing. Questions posed by the Democrats were also unrelated. After all had spoken, Sensenbrenner adjurned the meeting citing the irrelevance of the testimony. I have blogged on this on two, separate, occasions. Yesterday, Representative Nadler introduced a resolution asking for Sensenbrenner to be reprimanded for his conduct. The resolution was quickly tabled but, not until, both sides spoke. Sensenbrenner's statement was bold and to the point. He yielded back his remaining time to the floor which demonstrated, to me, his confidence in his position.
