The initial confirmation vote for Eric Holder, President Barack Obama's pick for attorney general, was postponed for a week Wednesday after a rancorous meeting of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Republicans, who want to question Holder about his role in a controversial presidential pardon when he worked in the Clinton administration, used a procedure that allows them to put off the vote.
I'd prefer they went after him over his hostility to the Bill of Rights, but I'll take what I can get.
Use the delay to pile it on. If you're a gun owner and you haven't contacted your senator yet, there's still time. Just do it.
And here's another group that needs to hear from you. This business of not considering a confirmation vote as a vote against gun rights ought to be viewed as just plain unacceptable.
