Judge Michael O'Neill

Surely Mr. O'Neill's own words confirm his unsuitability for a position in the Federal judiciary.

He claims that his poor work methods led him to confuse his own work with that of others. Such poor work methods are unacceptable in a Federal judge. The essence of the judicial temperament is the ability to keep clear what the law says, what the plaintiff's lawyer claims the law to be, and what the defendant's lawyer claims the law to be. Mr. O'Neill has amply demonstrated his inability to keep such distinctions straight.

Mr. Bush should withdraw his nomination immediately.

I find this kind of logic to be inane. Everyone makes errors and mistakes, everyone. There is not one person on this earth that can claim not to have made a mistake. I would rather have the individual that does make a mistake and professes to it and apologized than the person that would lie, hide from it or denied that they were in error. That is what, in the end, will make for a great society. Unlike our current one where everyone pushes blame on to others.
