    It wouldn't make you inconsistent, it might actually show some common sense...
    It would add some credibility to other discussions.

    This nomination is very scary to me, and I have already written my senators. I just hope it is soon enough to make a difference.

    Your letters will be to late. His nomination was approved yesterday by some slight of hand voting.

    This is a sad day for all of us.

    RPOA is nonpartisan and our only concern is animal issues at all levels of
    government.
    We regret that more emphasis hasn't been placed on the effect the Cass
    Sunstein appointment by President Obama will have on animal/pet ownership.
    HSUS and ASPCA have been trying for years to get incremental changes in the
    Animal Welfare Act as a forerunner to eventually end pet breeding (all
    species) in the US. Remember PAWS, the misnamed "Pet Animal Welfare
    Statute" that was defeated? Failing in that attempt, these extremists have
    taken their agenda to state legislatures and our cities.

    Consumer Group: Senate Confirmation of Animal-Rights Activist Cass
    Sunstein Will Have Hidden Costs

    New "Regulatory Czar" Threatens To Nudge America Toward Vegetarianism,
    Loony Lawsuits

    WASHINGTON--This afternoon the United States Senate confirmed the
    nomination of Cass Sunstein to head the Office of Information and
    Regulatory Affairs in the Obama White House. The confirmation came after
    three different senators placed procedural "holds" on Sunstein's
    nomination, and only succeeded after a highly unusual cloture vote on
    the Senate floor late yesterday. Sunstein is a self-described believer
    in the philosophy of "animal rights." He has argued that sport hunting
    should be illegal, that meat-eating should be rare, and that animals
    should have the right to sue human beings in courts of law.

    Today David Martosko, Director of Research at the nonprofit Center for
    Consumer Freedom, issued the following statement:

    The judicious and ethical use of animals is woven into practically
    every part of the American experience, and Mr. Sunstein's confirmation
    is a sad indication that radical ideology can trump our way of life.
    Sunstein embraces the fringe belief that animals are people, and people
    are animals. Now that his philosophy can inform government policy,
    Americans who raise animals for food, hunters and fishermen-and even
    cancer researchers who use lab animals-could find their work
    prohibitively expensive or a red-tape nightmare.

    Cass Sunstein perfectly represents a segment of society that wants
    to exercise as much control over ordinary Americans as possible: control
    over what we eat, what we drive, how we stay healthy, and even which
    doctors we can afford. Our personal freedoms shouldn't be subject to the
    whims of a political 'czar' who gets his values from a PETA website.

    The Congressional Research Service reports that between 1968 and
    2006, only 54 judicial and executive nominees-out of many
    thousands-needed a cloture vote to escape the objections of U.S.
    Senators. Majority Leader Harry Reid's use of this tactic is a good
    indication of just how radical Cass Sunstein's views are, and how far
    out of step animal-rights dogma is with ordinary Americans.

    So, he sounds like a real nut job whose beliefs are dangerous to our way of life. In his new position, what will his job responsibilities be, and more specifically, how will he be able to push those beliefs upon us successfully?
