WOW! Merry Christmas, Ho Ho Ho...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush will resubmit to the Senate many of the judicial nominees blocked by Democrats as too conservative, setting off a second-term battle over the make up of the federal courts, officials said on Thursday.

Emboldened by his re-election victory and gains by Republicans in the Senate, Bush plans to resubmit 20 nominations for positions on key U.S. appeals and district courts, the White House said...

The gauntlet is thrown down. I love it. We either get some good judges, or a great campaign issue in '06.

..."It's a disservice to the American people to detract from the important work of the Senate to reconsider these failed nominees," said Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, the Senate's new Democratic leader...

Oh no no no Harry Reid, they are not "failed" candidates. You prevented the Senate from voting on them, as the Constitution requires, just because you knew they would be successful. Naughty to tell such lies. And isn't filling judicial vacancies "important work?"

NARAL Pro-Choice America derided what it called the Christian right's "Christmas wish list" of nominees...

Yeah, you hate them Christians. We get the picture. Canada beckons.

People For the American Way President Ralph Neas accused Bush of brandishing "a partisan club" instead of reaching out...

You know, even really stupid people, like Republicans, can see through a brick wall given enough time. We know what your "reaching out" means by now. Bad news pal, you're in the minority party. Better start practicing some "reaching out" yourself.
