Joe Gersten is still down under, right?
I'll hire my pal David Markus to tie up the feds, and my biggest concern in the morning will be whether to go fishing or diving.
Everyone has a number that they would take to do something wrong. What's your number?
Speaking of David, he writes in his blog today that Judge Sydney Thomas of the 9th Circuit is being vetted by the White House for Justice Stevens seat. I find it hard to believe the WH believes they can get someone from the 9th Circuit on the Court. They'd have a better chance with whomever is the Judge at the Hialeah Branch Court.
Here's my take for whatever it is worth- Now is the time for Obama to get his "controversial" pick on the court. Now is the time to take a risk, as the Republicans see this appointment as a replacement for Stevens, leaving Republican appointee Justice Kennedy as the swing vote. This pick by the WH will not change the balance of the court; the next pick will. If per chance one of the court's conservative justices decides to retire, that is when the right will go nuts and will try and force the WH into picking another conservative justice. So now is not the time to avoid a confirmation battle by picking a safe choice.
Most of the current members of the Pittsburgh Steelers remain free of indictment, but that could change in a hurry. Some storied franchise, huh? Go Fins, and re-sign Jason Taylor please.
