You Be The Judge
It's finally arrived: Bush will nominate his first Justice to the Supreme Court. I'm hoping he balances out the extremists like Justice Ginsberg with someone more mainstream like Antonin Scalia. You know, someone with Main Street values and a modicum of respect for the Constitution. I let the movers and shakers in my party know that the people I talk to are fed up with their shenanigans: I don’t know what sort of feedback you get, but in my world we Democrats are seen as a bunch of spoiled children, engaged in a non-stop tantrum since November 2000. We seem to pick all the wrong battles and lose election after election. Concerning the upcoming battle over the nomination to replace Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, I am afraid if our Senators “Bork” the nominee, a number of our best people may get “Daschled” in the election of 2006. You may want make your views known to the Members of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. I understand that a letter carries more weight than a phone call and an eMail message or online petition is ignored.
