Measuring Joementum

I wonder if the fact that Joe Lieberman lacks any relevant experience or qualifications to be FBI Director will pose any barrier to him being confirmed. This Senate has already approved a bunch of cabinet members who completely lacked qualifications for their post. Will this be any different? Have the lessons of the last few months sunk in? Will the fact that we have crept slightly closer to the 2018 mid-term elections make a difference? Or will the fact that Holy Joe is well liked by several key Senate Republicans allow him to sail through to a major law enforcement post despite his complete lack of any law enforcement or background in criminal justice?

It looks like a lot of Democrats won't support the nomination, but the real question is whether any Republicans will defect.
