    Loretta Lynn crossed my mind too. But how many other Loretta's do we know of? Plus the last names are pretty close Lynn=Lynch.

    another affirmative action poster child apparently. I will have to do some checking on her since her wiki article is really thin

    It doesn't make you look racist at all when you make those claims.

    she is the same class as I was (1984) back then affirmative action at Harvard law was out of control. NONE of the blacks who were accepted at Harvard for the class of 1984 were as qualified as at least 2000 white males who were turned down at that school

    back then blacks got .5 added to their GPA and 130 points added to their LSAT scores

    Don't know much about her...No one can be as corrupt as Holder...But we'll see.

    While I certainly believe much of what TSA does is theater I do see a difference between being searched in order to board a plane and cops stopping people on the street for random searches.

    That's not true.... Obama appointed a white, male conservative to head the DoD.

    When has Obama failed to exceed our expectations?

    Mayor Guiliani just made a good case for her being approved on Hannity--she's a life-long prosecutor as one point.
    I can't disagree with his points though that the new Senate should approve her, taking away the "stain" of being approved by losing DEM Senators.

    Gov. Walker next but I won't be able to watch West/Palin .

    Did you know that except for SCOTUS judges, the senate rule change on filibusters only applied to federal judge nominations?

    The repubs could still block her nomination.
