I'm Sold

This is as good a reason as any I can think of to support the nomination of John Roberts for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

WASHINGTON - A second Judiciary Committee Democrat - Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California - announced Thursday she would oppose Supreme Court nominee John Roberts as his nomination made its way to the full Senate.

Let's recap: As of today, we've learned that Senators Kerry, Kennedy, and Feinstein all strongly oppose his nomination. Hmmmm...

That's three out of four, so far. I'd say my mind's solidly made up on the issue. And if you need a caption for that particular photograph, you have not been paying attention.

Chucky Schumer, as of this morning, has not indicated how he plans on voting (as if there are any lingering doubts). On that subject, I came across this picture today and have to wonder if "thumbs up" means "Screw 'em all!" in some kind of liberal secret code language of which I'm blissfully not aware.

UPDATE: It's another shocker, folks.

Schumer voted "no"

Also joining hands with the aforementioned Fantastic Four in opposing the nomination of Judge Roberts are these stalwart champions of the people's right to bear arms:

Barbara Boxer (D - California)
Jon Corzine (D - New Jersey)
Frank Lautenberg (D - New Jersey)

"Thumbs up", indeed!

And...just because.
