John Roberts nominated for CHIEF Supreme Court Justice...Hunh??
President Bush nominated John Roberts to succeed Chief Justice Rehnquist as the next Chief Supreme Court Justice.
Right now, I'm feeling like I'm walking down busy Peachtree Street and there is a big pink elephant sitting in the middle of the intersection. Everyone's just walking by, paying the sight no mind. But me, I see such a thing and I must ask the obvious questions... (Hey, I have to admit that it's a strange analogy).
But that's the closest I can come to describing how I'm feeling about this whole John Roberts nomination.
Is it just me? Does anyone find this just a tad bit odd?
Can President Bush really nominate him to the highest position on the highest court?
Isn't this like skipping from the first grade to the seventh grade?
You know what this is like? It's like a sixteen-year-old freckled face kid walking into McDonald's to apply for an entry level job... And he gets hired on the spot. However, he doesn't get the entry level job. They throw a three-piece suit on him and make him the regional manager.
Aren't the other justices who have been on the bench of the highest court of America for the last umpteen years just a tad bit upset about this? Isn't there some type of seniority system in place?
Does John Roberts have enough experience for the job?
Does anybody care if he has enough experience for the job?
