Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) then switched his vote from yes to no in a move that allows him to bring the nomination up again for a future vote.
I guess it is not over?

He's just "saving face", if you can call that ugly mug a face...

Excellent news for a change. A corrupt cop killer was stopped. He would have made the rest of the Obama administration look pale in comparison to corruption. The Chicago mob, CAIR and the muslim brotherhood runs our White House untouchable. How sad.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

He's not the actual cop killer (that would be Mumia Abu-Jamal).  What this nominee (Debo Adegbile) did was actually stir up and agitate for an appeal, long after the killer was convicted, that resulted in his death sentence being converted to a life sentence.

However, I suspect that this act is probably only one on a long list of problems that this radical has caused over his career.  At least the Senate appears to have gotten one right, let's hope that it sticks.  However, with this regime, it is much like a whack-a-mole game, stopping this guy is a temporary "win" as you can be certain that the next nominee will be as bad (if not worse), but they'll probably seek one with a bit less public controversy attached to her/him.
