One nominee, Judge Merrick Garland, is sailing toward confirmation as the next attorney general. Another, Neera Tanden, is on the defensive as the nominee to become director of the Office of Management and Budget. What they share at this moment is the capacity of Republicans for compartmentalization and deliberate memory loss.

An interesting comparison and, of course, a prime example of the political double-standard. Neera Tanden is being accused of tweeting mean things about Republicans. I’m SHOCKED.
