  1. “Even if he is mediocre, there are a lot of mediocre judges and people and lawyers. Aren’t they entitled to a little representation and a little chance?” I wonder if Senator Hruska would want that nitwit ruling if a loved one of his’ life depended on the ruling? That has got to be one of the most assinine things I’ve ever heard coming from an elected representative.
