No on Whomever

I found an odd paragraph in an AP report on fractured leadership in the Democratic Party as it tries to exploit political gains in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The paragraph said:

Katrina has overshadowed the nomination of John Roberts to be chief justice. Though his confirmation is virtually assured, liberal interest groups have put the squeeze on Senate Democrats to oppose Roberts and Bush's yet-to-be-named pick to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

Hold on a minute. Liberal interest groups are determined to oppose an unknown nominee? What if President Bush goes crazy and nominates someone they like, such as Ramsey Clark, Michael Moore, Al Sharpton, Jane Fonda, George Soros, or Ted Kennedy? (No, you don't have to be a lawyer to be on the Supreme Court.)

Maybe they ought to find out who the nominee is before they oppose him or her. It would make them look a little more rational, and who knows, they might be surprised.

Maybe it'll be like the story of the boy who cried wolf. They'll yell so much no one will pay attention to them any more!

Note that it's the AP's wording; there's no citation that suggests anyone on the left made that statement.

The media LOVES partisanship, and journalistic ethics are lost. Don't hold Congress accountable for the AP's efforts at creating a divide.
