Bork was the all time worse.

He is the father of the "originalist' or 'intentionalist' movement.

I agree that he was an awful choice. The point is....An appointee is not rubber stamped into the Supreme Court as you implied in your 1st post.

Except I made it quite clear that they are...mostly. We just remember the bitter fights of those who lost. Roberts and Alito were approved with little trouble, not to mention that Breyer and Ginsberg didn't have a Congressional fight either.

Sure, there have been some rumours about Palin. But the thing is, many are not rumours, they've been substantiated! And the reason there have been a "boat load" over the past week and a bit is because it's the first time her entire political career has been under national scrutiny, and she's not standing up well to the examination.

Part of the problem is that if there were just one or two scandalous elements to her political past for the media to focus on, then word would get out there to the public. As it stands now, there are just too many unsavoury elements, and their efforts have been scattered.

That's what you get when you go with a relative unknown who wasn't vetted properly.

Actually most all of it has been proven NOT TRUE. Get your facts straight. And it is not because of her 1st time in the national spotlight. It is because the left media and liberal bloggers than see the election tide turning. The cannot let a Republican win again...at any cost.

Not vetted properly? Keep buying into the lies.

Palin is a saint. Anyone who says differently is a liberal scared of defeat.

I have a question for you, and it's not really "on topic". Why are you the way you are?

It's time to put your money where your mouth is: can you list any of these rumors that have been proven false? Besides her baby actually being Bristol's baby.

You can't expect to make statements like that and get away with it without showing some facts of your own.

Palin is a self-hating tool of the patriarchy.

Anyone who says differently is a women-hating conservative.

You're lecturing folks on getting facts straight? That's funny.

You don't think this has anything to do with the fact that she went from unknown to VP nominee in a week? Please! If this was a known canidate, things would be completely different. Stop with your "left" this "liberal" that, it completely weakens your argument and makes you look paranoid.

We've had time to figure things out about the other canidates, they don't need to be publicly vetted, she does, and that is exactly what's going on.

So who's fault is that? That is the system we have in place and it is clear that the system works. If the appointees get approved then they must have been qualified enough to get approved. I cannot believe that our Senate leader only choose to act in what you describe as, "Exceptional Circumstances."

If you disagree, you should submit a complaint to Joe Biden when he returns to the Senate after he loses the election in November.
