On Monday, writing on Twitter, former George W. Bush speechwriter David Frum compared the way Republicans on Capitol Hill are treating President Joe Biden's Office of Management and Budget nominee Neera Tanden to an episode of "Mad Men."

Their attacks on Tanden's Twitter behavior, when they overlooked far worse directed at them from former President Donald Trump, is a dead ringer for the fraudulent life of Don Draper, he argued:

Tanden is the longtime head of the liberal think tank, the Center for American Progress. Her nomination is in grave doubt as no Republican appears willing to vote for her, and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has similarly said he intends to throw her overboard.
