Kenny Starr is at it again. In this week’s installment, he told a crowd of Mormon attorneys that because of “the President’s own approach to the high court during his years of service as a United States Senator,” he can expect a tough time when making judicial nominations. See, that’s exactly what they were thinking at the Constitutional Convention back in 1787 – Senators should definitely prioritize the party affiliation and senatorial voting record of the President when considering his nominations to the goddamn Supreme Court. The whole thing about, say, who the nominee actually is, his or her legal theories, service to the United States…yeah that doesn’t matter too much. Appointing Justices to the Supreme Court should have much more to do with political retribution than any of that boring old stuff.
