A reader reminds me why my Sessions for SCOTUS idea is positively brilliant:
Jeff Sessions is my senator and I think he’s great! He would make a fantastic Supreme Court justice. But did you know that President Reagan nominated Sessions for a federal judgeship in 1986? Democrats (probably the same dinosaur Dems who are still around) blocked his nomination after civil rights groups raised questions of racial intolerance–probably similar to what the esteemed, honorable Judge Charles Pickering had to deal with a few years ago. The Sessions rejected nomination is mentioned briefly in this column about mid-way down. I think it’s a kick that after his nomination was rejected, he ran for Senate and now sits on the Judiciary Committee with some of the same twits who gave his thumbs down in 1986. Jeff Sessions rocks!
