Senator Hatch suggests that he would like to see the Senate move beyond the time that nominees are considered on the basis of their political beliefs. Leaving aside the fact that JR Brown isn't particularly well rated, and certainly not among the most qualified of Judges, let's return to those radical freaks who went against the choice of President Goerge Washington for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. John Rutledge was voted down precisely because of his political views. Senator O Hatch's loyalty to Dear Leader is astounding. I suppose if someone's politics tend to the theocratic, fascist or communist, I suppose O Hatch would have no problem.
