Well, back to the topic of this thread. the DenverPost.com is not cooperative, so I can't provide a link, but Ruben Navarrette, Jr. did an opinion piece on 1/17 about Bush's re-nomination of judge Charles Pickering for the fifth circuit Court of Appeals.
According to Navarrette, this judge argued all the way to Janet Reno for leniency for a guy who burned an eight foot cross on the home of an inter-racial couple, and then fired a few gunshots into their house for good measure.
The Democratic Senate denied Pickering, but the shrub insists he is a good judge. With the present bush-surgeon-hero majority of Congress. it looks like he'll get confirmed.
How any judge, regardless of political party could condone leniency for a guy burning a cross and firing gunshots into a house with innocent adults AND CHILDREN inside is beyond me. That Bush thinks that this is "his type of judge" doesn't surprise me at all.
If any of you "conservatives" can explain how this is all good for minorities, I'd be grateful. Thanks, BlueJay
