Ron Johnson reverses two centuries of U.S. law

Don't just take my word for it:
1. The nomination. This is the sole act of the President, and is completely voluntary. — Marbury v. Madison, 5 U.S. 137 (1803).
Emphasis added. Ron Johnson cannot read the U.S. Constitution.

Which is not particularly surprising. What is surprising, however, is that these seven attorneys, among whom is Scott Walker's choice to head up his own judicial nominating committee, make precisely the same error.

And they are all criticizing these nominees' qualifications. It's laughable.

Ladies and gentlemen, your strict constructionist, judicial conservatives.

But, according to RoJo, there are too many lawyers in the Senate [so we needed to balance that out with the election of a plastics manufacturer]. Suddenly, we find ourselves short a lawyer and exceeding our capacity for plastics manufacturers.
