El Presidente has signaled how it's gonna be in his second term, renominating for lifetime appointments 20 judges who were previously blocked by Democrats in the U.S. Senate. You can read here about the men who are North Carolinians, most of them former Jesse Helms associates who aspire to judge us all, and harshly.
It'll be time, and very soon, for Senate Democrats to stand up and be counted. And for a few so-called moderate Republicans as well.
Lord, save us from conservative idealogues, is our prayer for 2005.
Lord, save us from their bland, moral superiority.
