Republican Senators Fake Outrage over Sotomayor's "Shortest Timeline" Hearing. Not Shortest...Wrong again.

Let's start with the phony outrage staged again by Senate Republicans. I know, here we go again...
AP-The top Senate Republican accused Democrats Wednesday of moving too hastily on Sonia Sotomayor's Supreme Court nomination, warning that their decision would have unspecified "consequences."

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., criticized Democrats for scheduling mid-July hearings for the federal appeals judge.

"They want the shortest timeline in recent memory for someone with the longest judicial record in recent memory," McConnell said. "This violates basic standards of fairness and it prevents senators from carrying out one of their most solemn duties."

Rachel Maddow breaks down the "shortest timeline" claim by McConnell, and other facts the Republicans we're hoping no one would mention. Again, they look the fools.
