I'm sorry, but what is the problem supposed to be?

Republican appointees now constitute a majority of judges on 10 of the nation's 13 federal appeals courts. As few as three more lifetime appointments on key courts would tip the balance in favor of GOP appointees on all but one appeals court - the Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.

I'm sorry, but this is too much. Is the suggestion then that conservatives appoint more judicious, thoughful, fair, and balanced judges? That conservative judges are more qualified? Better represent the will of the people?

No way. No freaking way. I'm writing a letter to every Dem to encourage them to filibuster on this issue. Heck, filibuster on every issue. Republicans are showing that nothing short of complete single party ideological domination will suffice. For that, they deserve to be overthrown. "E pluribus unum", not "Regnat majorum".

It could just be the same as the relationship between college professors and liberals: yes, the balance tips that way, but it's a free market.
