Supreme Court Shenanigans 

In a perfect world Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas would have been nominated to be Chief Justice. His decisions cut right to the heart of what the Founders has in mind when our Constitution was written. Here's a great example.

So the world's not perfect. In fairness Justice Scalia would have been next in line. His experience would have resulted in an easy confirmation hearing. But the President decided, in the interest of time and to maintain 9 members on the court in October, that Judge Roberts would make the best choice to replace Rehnquist.

But the Supreme Court is not about expediency, even in the face of a major natural disaster. Judge Robert is currently an unknown quantity and the job should have been given to someone who is well versed in how the court operates.
