Can’t we all just agree to stop nominating segregationists to the federal bench now that the 21st century has arrived? Charles Pickering’s nomination to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals was supposed to have been dead in the water, but President Bush had a photo op with him today to try to revive it. The guy is your typical old time southern segregationist Bible thumper who claims to have changed. I hope the Senate Judiciary Committee flushes him and moves on.
