Advice and Consent of Senate on Supreme Court Nominees

Ding Ding Ding! The Coyote Blog sums up my feelings on the matter of the Scalia replacement. I am particularly fond of this statement:

“….the very fact a Supreme Court nomination is so politically radioactive is a sign of a basic governmental failure in and of itself.  The libertarian argument is that by giving the government so much power to intervene in so many ways that creates winners and losers by legislative diktat, we have raised the stakes of minutes points of law to previously unimaginable levels.  In a world where the government is not empowered to micro-manage our lives, a Supreme Court nomination would be as interesting as naming the postmaster general.”
