COM: That's about perfect . . .

About the looming Supreme Court nomination process . . .

"They don't need me lobbying on this stuff - they know what to do," said Grover
Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, a conservative group with close
ties to the White House. "My only recommendation is that they nominate someone who is 12 or 13 years old," to ensure as long a conservative legacy as possible.
-- from MSNBC, which somehow felt obliged to
clarify the statement with their own addendum

When you get right down to it, 12 or 13 years old is all the mentality, experience and independence someone would need to be a conservative justice . . .

And this, from the same article . . .

But Mr. Hatch, breaking with fellow conservatives, suggested in an
interview that he would support Mr. Gonzales.

"Let me not get into any nominee, but Gonzales is an excellent human
being," Mr. Hatch said. "He's done an exceptional job as White House counsel.
He's brought additional stability and peace to the Justice Department. I know
the president is interested in trying to find people of diversity - he's really
bent over to do that as president of the United States."

Hmmm . . . he had to bend over to appoint some diversity . . . well, thanks for the nobility oh leader of the bigots.
