The farce goes on... Leave it to the Bush administration. The logic that rewarded the torture-memo guy with a promotion (Gonzalez, Attorney General) and the overseer of America's worst intelligence failure with the highest civilian recognition (Tenet, Medal of Freedom) is now in play in judicial appointments:
"I've a constitutional responsibility to nominate well-qualified men and women for the federal courts; I have done so." - President Bush, 2/14/05

"Nominations Sent to the Senate: Thomas B. Griffith, of Utah, to be United States Circuit Judge for the District of Columbia Circuit." - White House Press Release, 2/14/05

"Thomas B. Griffith, President Bush's nominee for the federal appeals court in Washington, has been practicing law in Utah without a state law license for the past four years, according to Utah state officials." - Washington Post, 6/21/04
