One More Pryor Gush


And, Rick, he’s an model of how a religious person can live a principled public life–and be successful. This is from a Mobile Register piece on Friday:

“I can think of no greater honor or weightier responsibility for an American lawyer than to serve as a federal judge who is bound to support and defend the Constitution of our beloved nation,” Pryor said in the statement, released through his Birmingham office. “By God’s grace, I will continue to give this duty my best effort.”

Pryor shocked people with his honesty and refusal to back down, despite attacks (which Dems made about religion). The president stood behind him. And now, he’s been confirmed by the Senate. Sometimes the right thing does happen, because good men don’t give up.
