The Senate rejected 27 (20%) of the 149 nominees to the Supreme Court made between the nation's founding and 2005. The reasons for the rejections vary, and include incompetence, inexperience, and impropriety. Most of the rejections, however, reflect in part, or even primarily, a difference between the President and the Senate over whether the nominated justice represents the right ideological choice.........

The rating of "Well Qualified" is reserved for those found to merit the Committee's strongest affirmative endorsement.
Fascinating. A terrorist supporter here waxing on mature democratic politics?!
SF is one of those few people left who thinks he has reason to resent genocide and political oppression.
You can read French but you can't understand English?
ersi, your knowledge of history is deficient.

What makes me "incomprehensible" to you is that I don't subscribe to your biases and I don't think ersi is the center of the universe!
I wonder what the UN is waiting for expulsing such barbarians from the civilized comunity.

Gun owners received disappointing news on Monday when the U.S. Supreme Court declined to review a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit that effectively let stand California's "may-issue" permitting regime. The upshot of this decision is that law-abiding Californians in many areas of the state will be effectively denied the right to "bear" arms in public for self-defense.
