  1. Native American aside – the dude is more than qualified. Yale Law, Dartmouth undergrad, clerkships under two different federal judges, private practice, federal prosecutor, adjunct law professor, tribal court judge, BIA judge, active in the Bar and the community.

    More qualified than a lot of judges who get appointed. It would be interesting to see how many were just former politicians and not actual practicing attorneys.

    Saw an article that described him as “apolitical” – that would be nice for a change.

    • Thanks for your comments, David.

      “Apolitical” used to be an assumed part of the job description for any serious sitting judge. (I used to consider Federal court judges ‘serious”.)

      Now, you have Justice Scalia, who should have recused himself as a friend of one of the plaintiffs in Bush v Gore (i.e., Dick Cheney) and didn’t. Or Justice Scalia, who now gives secret talks which are closed to journalists and recording devices to select groups, and that’s okay because we know he’s impartial and apolitical. Or Justice Thomas, who should have recused himself in Bush v Gore because his wife was an official in the Bush campaign. Or Justice Thomas, who should have at least considered recusing himself in People United because his wife was a lobbyist for conservative causes. (But I’ll give the benefit of the doubt on that one, since it’s a close call, assuming that you believe in your heart that Justice Thomas is apolitical and impartial.

      Doesn’t it make you yearn for the days when far left liberal presidents like Eisenhower, Nixon and Reagan were appointing judges?

  2. You forgot to mention Clarence Thomas; he just might be more guilty or just as guilty as Scalia given that his wife, Jenny Thomas, was a paid director of a group that was financed by known conservative contributors and her income was not included in their joint tax return for the last five years.
    Their behavior is truly shameful and should be addressed and
    any attendance by any member of the Supreme Court at anything that can be construed as political should not be tolerated and should be changed immediately ! ! !

  3. Maobama wouldn’t nominate Jesus to a judgeship – he would only nominate left-wing nut cases. Anyone maobama nominates is going to be unfit for the job, ethnicity has nothing to do with it. The fact that maobama only picks liberal degenerates is the reason this candidate was opposed.

    • Hey Bob,

      Thanks for your comment. I think you perfectly exemplify the thoughtfull, educated, well-informed and articulate branch of conservative thinking that we face in this country today.

      I also would like to point out that, by all accounts, Jesus was a Semitic, Middle-Eastern, pacifist liberal extremist.
