Can This Nomination Be Justified?: George Will writes, "It is not important that she be confirmed because there is no evidence that she is among the leading lights of American jurisprudence, or that she possesses talents commensurate with the Supreme Court's tasks."

Of course, George Will. What we need are talented people who can "make sophisticated judgments about competing approaches to construing the Consitution." Just like some brilliant people found privacy in the "penumbra" of the constitution. Like the "appearance of a likeness" that Ezekiel saw.

It is an academic exercise afterall, and a game that lawyers play, hardly ever affecting the everyday life of Americans, you know. Ever learning but not coming to the knowledge of the truth. But what can you expect from a "conservative" writer who cannot see anything intelligent in the design of a penguin. He has to keep his own "credentials" in order so that he can keep appearing on Sunday morning television.
