Senate Invokes Cloture on Kavanaugh Nomination

The Senate has voted 67 to 30 to invoke cloture on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to be a judge on the D.C. Circuit. This is good news, indeed. But it ought not have taken this long, and it nis high time that the Senate GOP start to move the President's judicial nominations in a more expeditious manner.

Flags at half mast

We are saddened by the news > that Judge Edward Becker has died. He was a fine man and an oustanding judge. We will miss him, and pray that God will have mercy on his soul. Farewell, Judge Becker.

No More Souters

I don't expect that Justice Souter has to worry about whether conservatives will in a year be crying "no more Alitos." I have every confidence that Justice Alito will be as solid on the Supreme Court as he was on the Third Circuit. Would that that could be said about the odd little man from New Hampshire. Oh -- and welcome to any of the pinkos visiting from the Maclaw Opinion site. Be sure to freshen your tinfoil on the way out.
