A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Judge Roberts is not a woman: The fact that President Bush nominated a man to replace a woman on the Supreme Court got Colorado's junior senator, Ken Salazar, panties in a twist.


Dear President Bush:

I do not know yet how I will vote on the confirmation of Judge John G. Roberts Jr. I will honor the processes of the Senate in considering his nomination. The fact you have not selected a distinguished woman in the mold of Justice Sandra Day O’Connor is not a reason for disqualification. However, I want to express my disappointment that you have missed an opportunity to help create an America that includes women at all levels of our nation’s government.


When Bush 41 nominated Clarence Thomas to replace Thurgood Marshall, liberals loudly complained that Thomas wasn't the best candidate for the position -- Bush 41 had only selected Thomas because he was black.

Well, Bush 43 chose the best person for the job, and John Roberts can't help the fact that he's a man.

If Salazar is seriously concerned about creating opportunites that include "women at all levels of our nation’s government," then maybe he ought to start in his own office -- the top of his press release reads:


CONTACT: Cody Wertz – Press Secretary
202-228-3630

Jen Clanahan – Deputy Press Secretary
303-455-7600


Why is his press secretary a man? Why is the deputy a woman? In fact, while Salazar employs many women on his staff, his state director and state issues counsel -- both very important positions -- are held by men.

Are my criticisms silly? Of course, but so is Salazar's complaint. Maybe I am overqualified for Randy "Duke" Cunningham's House seat -- I should run against Dianne Feinstein.

I'm afraid having a blog like this one disqualifies you from ever being a Senator. Not a lot of wiggle room when its all archived. Real leaders aren't uniters... and they are also no longer electable.
