Right Intention: Supermajority Vote For Judges?

Supermajority Vote For Judges?

From Radioblogger, I found another example of the Democratic strategy, wonderfully articulated by Barbara Boxer.

Why would we give lifetime appointments to people who earn up to $200,000 a year, with absolutely a great retirement system, and all the things all Americans wish for, with absolutely no check and balance except that one confirmation vote. So we're saying we think you ought to get nine votes over the 51 required. That isn't too much to ask for such a super important position. There ought to be a super vote. Don't you think so? It's the only check and balance on these people. They're in for life. They don't stand for election like we do, which is scary.

Again you see the Democrats have neither the interest in re-assessing their ideas and beliefs nor the desire to convince the citizens of our country that their current ideas are sound. Instead they want to encode their ideas into law via judicial fiat, which is endangered by the Republican control of the Presidency and Senate. That's why you see the Democrats filibustering judges and their hysterics with regard to potential Republican tactics to counter it. The "nuclear option" is really nothing more than an attempt to move the process back in line with historical precedent and with what the founding fathers originally intended. But with this last pillar of power removed, the Democrats will eventually have to rejoin the political process and implement their vision the old fashioned way, by winning elections. And when the Democrats finally face up to reality, it will be a much healthier process and the entire country will benefit.

By the way, the far left seems infatuated by Barbara Boxer. Please, please, please nominate her for the Presidency in '08. As a registered Democrat, I hereby promise right now to vote for her in the primary. Nominating a nutjob like Boxer will result in an electoral defeat on a biblical scale for the Democrats. It will only hasten the meltdown the party needs to have before it can be reborn. Sort of like the phoenix rising from its own ashes.
