Controversial court nominee survives Senate test

By LARRY MARGASAK (AP) – 1 hour ago

Democrats latest hero.

WASHINGTON — Democrats on Tuesday crushed a Senate filibuster against a controversial appeals court nominee, demonstrating to Republicans they can’t stop President Barack Obama from turning the federal judiciary to the left.

The 70-29 vote limited debate over the qualifications of U.S. District Judge David Hamilton of Indiana (Obama Appointee: Jesus, no, but yes to Allah), and assured his elevation to the Chicago-based appeals court. Sixty votes were needed to end the filibuster, but confirmation only requires a simple majority of the 100-member Senate.

The vote emphatically warned Republicans that with only 40 senators, they’re too outnumbered to prevent Obama from making major inroads into a judiciary that was populated over eight years with conservative judges chosen by President George W. Bush.

Obama nominates a extreme radical to the Court of Appeals

Senate Democrats are proving once again that no judicial nominee is too extreme for them to stomach. A move seems to be afoot to open debate on the Senate floor this week on the nomination of David Hamilton of Indiana to the 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. This judge is a radical’s radical.

Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, the ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committee, sent a letter on Friday to his fellow senators outlining his objections to Mr. Hamilton, who is a federal district judge. The senator first objected to Judge Hamilton’s stated belief that judges should effectively amend the Constitution –

“writing footnotes to the Constitution,” the judge called it – through evolving case law. Second, Judge Hamilton has publicly and specifically embraced the president’s “empathy standard,” which even Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has now openly rejected.

Third, Judge Hamilton in many cases has shown an extreme hostility against innocuous expressions of religion in the public square. Mr. Sessions noted, though, that Judge Hamilton’s odd ruling in Hinrichs v. Bosma “prohibited prayers in the Indiana House of Representatives that expressly mentioned Jesus Christ … yet he allowed prayers which mentioned Allah.”

I want to know the names of the 10 so-called Republicans who voted for this judge. They will be hearing from me! I have my postcards and stamps ready to go, and I just bought red ink pens today, too.

If anyone finds a list of these names, please let me know. Thanks!

Muffin,

I could find only this: “The President consulted Indiana Senators Evan Bayh (D) and Richard Lugar (R), and they enthusiastically supported Judge Hamilton.”

Damn. Just damn.

Just keep loading those rounds for your RINO gun, Sarah, as you are headed for a decidedly target rich environment.

Here’s the list of 10:

Murkowski (R-AK)
Chambliss (R-GA)
Lugar (R-IN)
Collins (R-ME)
Snowe (R-ME)
Gregg (R-NH)
Thune (R-SD
Alexander (R-TN)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Hatch (R-UT)

I am totally stunned that Saxby Chambliss voted for this judge.

Many same old RINOs. The usual list of suspects: Snowe, Hatch, Murkowski, Collins….

*&%$#@ them all!

And if voters in those states reelect this corrupt bunch, they should all go to hell.
