Whatever Happened To Selecting The Best?

With the news of the planned retirement of Justice David H. Souter, B HO now has the privilege of selecting a replacement for his lifetime seat on the United States Supreme Court, our highest law in the land.

Those nominated for this seat should be the best and the brightest our country has to offer since their position is a lifetime appointment and it falls upon them to properly interpret our laws and constitution in legal matters.

That makes it all the more preposterous to read in today's Washington Post, "The list is heavy with women and minorities, because the last three justices confirmed to the court were white men."

Even more incredulous in that statement is how the leftist reacted to the nominations of women and minorities made by President Bush, one prominent United States Senator referring to them as "neanderthals."

And now, they have the audacity to complain, "the last three justices confirmed to the court were white men?"

Missing from the list of possibilities is Federal Judge Janice Rogers Brown, a Black woman nominated for federal judge by President Bush and who Democrats fought and opposed for over two years!

How ironic that those who condemn the use of racial profiling in law enforcement, embrace it for a lifetime selection to the highest court in the land!
