Terrific Tuesday Tidings: Judge Confirmed, Marriage Equality, and Hilarity Ensues

It's Tuesday and that means it's time for my ongoing quest to become a more positive person. Here are the news stories that made me happy this week:
  • Despite Republicans best efforts to grind the gears of government to a halt, Senate Democrats were able to overcome a Republican filibuster to confirm Adalberto Jose Jordan's judicial nomination to the Eleventh Circuit in a vote that went 94-5 (and yes, that means basically all Republicans voted for him when it came to a vote, they were filibustering purely to hurt Obama).  Now if Republicans would just let the other 84 vacancies be filled, we can have an actually functional Judiciary.  Wouldn't that be nice.
  • Remember when Republicans claimed the sky was falling and the world would end because President Obama decide to try the so called "underwear bomber" terrorist in a civilian court?  Well, he's been sentenced to life in prison.  So I guess Republicans were wrong about denying due process, I'm sure we'll be hearing their apology any day now.
Have a great week!
