Politics

I've kept myself from commenting on politics so far, but I really have to say that Democrats pushing for an O'Connor-esque nominee for the Supreme Court just shows how much the leadership doesn't get it. If your first offer is for someone "moderately conservative" then clearly the compromise ground is going to be someone to the right of that. How simple is it to push for some lunatic leftist so the compromise will end up right where you want it, with an O'Connor look-alike. The right has been using this tactic for EVER, and it works every time. Robert Bork too conservative for you because he doesn't believe in the Judicial Branch? Ok, how about Clarence Thomas as a compromise? This is Power 101 stuff.
