Whose turn is it to say the Congress isn't supposed to do anything here?

Tim Sandefur's explanation of the limited role of the Senate with regard to the confirmation of judges sort of reminds me of the characterizations by others of the limited role of the Congress in the impeachment of presidents, basically that within pretty wide boundaries there is nothing for Congress to do.

In the recent case of the new judge in the E.D. Tenn., the Senate did nothing in record time, as he went from nomination to confirmation in about two months. I guess the Democrats have long since written off Eastern Tennessee.
