On Thursday, the White House announced that Bush will resubmit divisive federal appeals court nominations that had been held up by Congress.

Bush renominated William Haynes II, the Defense Department's chief lawyer and author of detainee policies, including policies that justify torture; William Myers III, an Idaho lobbyist for the mining and ranching industries and a critic of environmental regulation; Terrence Boyle, a former aide to Sen. Jesse Helms and district judge in North Carolina who has an abysmal record on civil rights and has had decisions reversed or vacated more than 100 times; and Michael Wallace, a Mississippi lawyer who has opposed enforcement of the Voting Rights Act and is the first federal court of appeals nominee in nearly 25 years to be rated unanimously "not qualified" by the American Bar Association.

So much for the pledge to compromise and de-emphasize partisanship. After the election thumpin', Bush seems more interested in picking fights with the Senate on judicial nominations than in filling vacancies.

Richard Brooks probably sets a new low for many aspects of columny: insight, narrowness of view, consistency, and, in my mind, basic fairness of analysis.

Another one of those vacuous Presidential Proclamations slipped by me last week.  Now we have an official week for "National Character Counts."
