"Scalialicious!"
-- Eve Tushnet


"Frankfurter was born too soon for the Web, but I'm sure that, had it been possible, there would have been the equivalent of Ninomania for Frankfurter."
-- Mark Tushnet
(I agree, and commented here.)

    :: Wednesday, July 13, 2005 ::
    Various sources are reporting Bush's remarks that he might consider someone not presently a judge.

    In The New York Times's piece on this theme, we also read:
    Democrats were said by two officials familiar with what took place on Tuesday to have broached the names of at least three judges of Hispanic background who they believed had a strong chance of being approved without a tumultuous confirmation fight: Judge Sonia Sotomayor of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, Judge Edward Prado of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and Judge Ricardo H. Hinojosa of Federal District Court in Texas. Mr. Leahy would not confirm that those names were mentioned, but said he saw them as strong candidates. These particular judges have not been among the top possible nominees mentioned by Republican allies of the White House.
    Emphasis added. Since Hinojosa's name has now come up, I am at liberty to mention something told me by another blogger who wishes to remain pseudonymous but whom I trust, specifically, that a person or persons unknown reached his blog via the search string "Ricardo Hinojosa gay." My friend stresses that the search turned up no evidence to support the implied rumor.
