26. Ever hear of Abe Fortas?
He was Lyndon Johnson's nominee to be Chief Justice in 1968, but a filibuster blocked his nomination and Johnson was forced to throw in the towel.

Senate confirmation should not be a rubber stamp process, especially when considering people who are nominated today by a half-witted ideologue whose legitimacy is questioned by a huge segment of the population.
