This is the most relevant

This is the most relevant aspect of the story. There were reich-wingers in the room. Those neanderthals that were actually on the committee were, as they were supposed to be, in the room. Those not in the room most likely had other assigned responsibilities in other places, other committees. They most likely shirked their actual duties so as to pretend that something was being unduly denied them.

OTOH, the Brooks Brothers tactic worked before to circumvent the wishes of the voters and install Bush the Dumber so, I guess the plan is just to "dance wit the one whut brung ya".

Here's the New York Times take:

What do the Republicans who have admitted that damning material has come out but don’t want to go further than that do?

There’s this safe island they’re clinging to. Right now, because they’re all closed depositions, it’s possible to suggest to the public that maybe what Democrats say they’re hearing, what we’re reporting is said, hasn’t actually been said. As long as they can cling to that, they feel like they have a leg to stand on.
