The Baltimore Sun on Claude Allen

The Wall Street Journal reports this morning that Miguel Estrada will today withdraw his name as a nominee for a seat on the D.C. Circuit. This is a sad day for all who support an indpendent judiciary comprised of men and women who understand the proper role of federal judges in our political system. It is an embarassment for the Senate Repubicans and for the White House, who had all better realize -- and soon -- that the Democrats unprecedented filibusters must be stopped. This is a fight that matters, and which the Republicans are losing badly.

Speaking of obesessions, it appears that the fools at Lewrockwell.com have a fairly unhealthy fixation with the so-called neo-cons (i.e., anyone who doesn't agree with the fools at Lewrockwell.com). Check it out.

At least one Republican member of the Senate Judicary Committee has come out fighting on the Pryor nomination, reports No comments: Links to this post
If you managed to catch Hillary Clinton's softball interview with Barbara Walyers, you got to see an example of mental illness at work. Hillary couldn't avoid taking another swipe at Ken Starr, and chanted the "out of control prosecutor" mantra. These people simply cannot get over their obsessions and delusions. Incidentally, by far the finest examination of the Starr investigation was published by two Washington Post reporters>/a>. Go figure.
Human Events has also come out in favor of the Pryor nomination.>/a>
Here's Bill Buckley on the No comments: Links to this post
The Democratic party's efforts to block President Bush's judicial nominations has reached the stage of absurdity. During confirmation hearings for Bill Pryor, who is nominated to a seat on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, Senator Russell Feingold actually suggested that Attorney General Pryor's decision to cancel a trip to Disney World so as to avoid exposing his young children to an event called "Gay Day" (and why Disney thinks they ought to be staging such events is a whole separate subject) somehow disqualifies Pryor from serving as a federal judge. National Review's Kathryn Jean Lopez wrote a fine piece on this bit of kabuki theater of the absurd>/a>

One salutary effect of the GOP takeover of the Senate is that the President's judicial nominees will finally start to move through the confirmation process. Byron York has an excellent piece on National Review Online today about the Estrada nomination.
