More on the Haynes nomination

One of those Southern Appeal gents has this post about a column he wrote calling for the confirmation of Fourth Circuit nominee Jim Haynes.

He writes:

"With the recent retirement of Judge Michael Luttig from the Fourth Circuit, the conservatives on the court have only six votes out of 12. The Fourth Circuit currently has several open seats, and unless the Senate votes on qualified nominees such as Jim Haynes prior to the mid-term elections we could see a Fourth Circuit much less in agreement with the average South Carolinian."

I read another article on this topic today, but it was too wacky for a link, something about a conspiracy of old military lawyers.
