What in the world is going on? Would somebody please explain to me what the “qualifications” to be a justice on the Supreme Court? There is nothing in the U.S. Constitution that tells me. All the Constitution tells me is that the President appoints the Justices (Article II, Section 2). You don’t have to be a lawyer. All you need is the Predential appointment and confirmation of the U. S. Senate (BTW that means 51 Aye votes). Senators, Ms Meirs deserves an up/down vote. No need for debate on the floor. No committee (Not in the Constitution). Just a vote. The people have sent you to Washington to do a job and you are spending too much time on petty politics. I don’t care if you are Democrat or Republican, DO THE JOB YOU WERE HIRE BY THE PEOPLE TO DO!
