    I certainly hope that when a SC nominee is announced, there is a well thought out Progressive response that speaks to his/her qualifications, background, and previous decisions.  Not knee-jerk name calling, not "litmus tests", and not comparisons to Nazis, unless it's Alberto "VTI" Gonzalez (Vlad the Impaler).

    We have an opportunity here, thanks to the Bush's low poll numbers and his need to have a win on something, to force the nomination of a moderate.  That will require a great deal of resolve and patience in the light of a neo-con media blitz.

    One tactic that I do think will work is comparing a nominee said to be "highly qualified" by the right wing to a previously "highly qualified" person:  John Bolton.  People tend to judge character by comparison to others, so hammering home such similarities will go a long way to neutralize a radical.
