Heritage Event on Judicial Nominations:

Speaking of judicial nominations, next Wednesday I will participate in a panel at the Heritage Foundation titled "Advice to President Obama on Judicial Nominations." The other panelists, who will likely have far more interesting things to say on the matter, are former Acting Solicitor General Walter Dellinger and National Journal columnist Stuart Taylor. Former Attorney General Ed Meese will moderate. Details here. While I doubt the Obama Administration takes advice from the Heritage Foundation all that often, it should be an interesting event.

Sunshine is good:
sounds like a classic "concern troll" to me...

Meese, Dellinger, Tayor, Adler ... sounds fair and balanced to me.

It's a pity they can't consult with Jerry Falwell on nominations like the last administration did.

Can we retire that phrase? Not only is it juvenile, but it's misplaced here. To the extent it applies, it's when someone pretends to be on your side for the purpose of misleading you. Heritage is not pretending; everyone knows where Heritage stands.

Comment Policy: We reserve the right to edit or delete comments, and in extreme cases to ban commenters, at our discretion. Comments must be relevant and civil (and, especially, free of name-calling). We think of comment threads like dinner parties at our homes. If you make the party unpleasant for us or for others, we'd rather you went elsewhere. We're happy to see a wide range of viewpoints, but we want all of them to be expressed as politely as possible.

We realize that such a comment policy can never be evenly enforced, because we can't possibly monitor every comment equally well. Hundreds of comments are posted every day here, and we don't read them all. Those we read, we read with different degrees of attention, and in different moods. We try to be fair, but we make no promises.

And remember, it's a big Internet. If you think we were mistaken in removing your post (or, in extreme cases, in removing you) -- or if you prefer a more free-for-all approach -- there are surely plenty of ways you can still get your views out.
