Bill Kristol on Democrat Obstructionism

Bill Kristol has this piece in the Weekly Standard on the filibustering of President Bush's judicial nominees. I sometimes disagree with Kristol's analysis, but he has it exactly right on this issue. An interesting read.

Confirm Priscilla Owen Now!

Senator John Cornyn has an excellent piece on National Review Online urging the confirmation by the Senate of Priscilla Owen. We agree with Senator Cornyn's cogent analysis, and call upon the liberal zealots to abandon their unprecdented filibuster of President Bush's appeals court nominees.

White House Expects a Double Play

According to Matt DrudgePresident Bush has told his staff to plan for two imminent vacancies on the Supreme Court. Speculation is that both Chief Justice Rehnquist and Justice Sandra Day O'Connor will step down at the end of the current Court term. Losing Rehnquist would be a blow, although his effectiveness has been essentially eliminated due to his health issues of late. Seeing O'Connor head home to Arizona, however, would be more than welcome.
