During Scotty's press briefing a reporter asked:

Q: Do you have any information that she was a registered democrat?

A: I don't know what her affiliation was back then. I do know that there were not a lot of republicans back in the 70's and early 80's in Texas.

Wouldn't that be a hoot if she was a registered democrat back in the day. Usually Scotty would have a little more info than that and his answer deflected the point entirely. It only supports the point that she's a crony and went where the money was.

Duncan makes some great points about her nomination: "They wanted to watch Democrats howl and scream and then ultimately lose a nasty confirmation battle. They wanted this to be their "WE RUN THE COUNTRY AND THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT" moment. Whatever kind of judge she would be, she doesn't provide them with that.

Can you help us out?
