Chuck Schumer alone can determine what makes a Supreme Court Justice.
From now on, all the President’s judicial appointments will need to meet the requirements of Mr. Schumer, the Park Slope power broker who has happily accepted the mantle of chief architect for the Democrats’ effort to build a majority for the 2008 elections and beyond.
So, it’s no longer the President who nominates justices. It’s all under “Shumer Oversight” now. Hegets to decide who sits on the Supreme Court. Not the President. Not the Senate. Not you and me. Just…. HIM.
Oh, I’m tickled pink the Democrats are back in control. What the Democrats lack in bumbling incompetence that was the hallmark of the Republican Congress, the Democrats make up for with unbridled deific hubris and arrogance.
