Recess Appointments 

Via Atrios, Via The Center for America Progress:

"Any appointment of a federal judge during a recess should be opposed."

- Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS) opposing the appointment of an African American judge, December 2000


"Judge Pickering's record deems this recess appointment fully appropriate."

- Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS), 1/17/04
Well, both sides kind of let politics drive principle often, but this is a pretty egregious example.
