Drudge says Bush is considering appointing Clarence Thomas as Chief Justice. Two comments:

"It would not only be historic, to nominate a minority as chief justice..."

I find it odd that someone so opposed to programs like affirmative action would benefit so much from them...

"...Justice Thomas simply has an extraordinary record."

Well, that's not quite how i would put it, but Thomas certainly does have an "extraordinary" record...


As someone else pointed out, this is (if true) probably the first of a "one, two punch" strategy. First nominate someone who is absolutely batshit insane and then nominate someone else who is still crazy but who (by comparison) is not so bad. Classic political trickery.
