The Supreme Court Nominee Post.

I was going to comment about the nomination, but the St. Blog's discussion quickly degenerated into "Ready...Fire!...Aim..." panic-mongering and demands for the behavior that a Properly Catholic™ Nominee is required to display. E.g., he must enter the Judiciary Committee chambers through a hole in the ceiling made with plastic explosives, wear a "Death to Roe!" tattoo on his forehead, and has to lash Pat Leahy with a rosary whenever the Senator from Vermont fails to phrase his queries in Latin. Moreover, failure to agree with these demands makes you Ted Kennedy's drinking buddy.

I quickly tired of trying to converse with mindset.

So, instead, I'll leave you with this non-partisan, non-religious observation:

There is something dangerously out-of-whack with the American political system when a single nominee to the Supreme Court is this important.

That is all.
