If It Looks Like a Lame Duck, Walks Like a Lame Duck, and Quacks Like a Lame Duck, It's Probably Being Appointed To the Federal Bench 

Via Kevin Drum, I see that President Halfwit is at it again still:
Lawmakers and others had been waiting to see whether Bush would renominate four particularly controversial appeals court candidates whose nominations had expired without Senate action. He did. The four include two nominees to the Fourth Circuit in Richmond: Terrence Boyle, a district court judge in North Carolina and a former aide to Sen. Jesse Helms, and Defense Department General Counsel William Haynes, who became a symbol of the Bush administration’s policies on terrorism, interrogations and other wartime powers. In addition, William Myers, a lobbyist and critic of environmental rules, was renominated for the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco, and Michael Wallace of Mississippi, rated unqualified for the appeals court by an American Bar Association panel, was renominated for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans.

These nominees are so bad that they couldn't get through the Republican-dominated Senate back when the Republicans believed they would always dominate the Senate. Renewing their nominations now is a pathetic waste of time, a blatant sop to the vanishing base, and a clear signal that the Junta does not intend to play nice when the new Congress takes over - but then, we knew that.
