Advise and consent


Is this "advise and consent"? Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid has said that Earl Warren is a model for the type of nominee that he hopes to see. Reid said:
"Mr. President, that's the kind of justice we hope you'll nominate," Reid said in Saturday's broadcast. "Someone who will bring us together. A mainstream justice who won't use their judicial robe as a cloak to impose their political ideology on the country."

That may be one of the most intellectually bankrupt statements I have ever heard. "A mainstream justice"? Earl Warren was the prototypical liberal activist judge. Warren was no more mainstream that Pat Buchanan is.

So the message here is, Democrats will "advise and consent" so long as Bush nominates a liberal activist. I think most Americans can see throught this farce.
