Weekend Winner and Loser -- 12/24 edition

Winners of the Week: William Keith Watkins and Kristi Dubose

The above Alabamians were confirmed by the US Senate to seats on the Federal District Court. Watkins, a Troy attorney, will take over the state's Middle District, while Dubose will sit on the Southern District. Mitchell's nomination came as a result of close ties to Richard Shelby and Dubose's relationship with Jeff Sessions no doubt helped her land the post.

In contrast to some previous judicial nominees (e.g. Bill Pryor) Watkins and Dubose were confirmed rather painlessly.

Loser of the Week: The nameless entity waging the "War on Christmas"

Talking heads like Bill O'Reilly and John Gibson have been telling me for weeks that nefarious forces (ACLU? Wal-Mart??) are trying to keep me from celebrating Christmas. Well, I don't know exactly who is trying to cancel Christmas, but they've obviously failed as I (and everyone I know) am looking forward to a Christmas celebration tomorrow. Better luck next year, grinches!

Yes, we won the War on Christmas! We were only able to prevail, however, by illegally wiretapping tens of thousands of American citizens who, according to secret government records, had previously used the code phrase "Happy Holidays"

isnt kristi lee the one who screwed up the steel company case that almost got jeff session criminally prosecuted when he was attorney general. i think it was called tieco, or trico steel?
how does a dumbo like that become a federal judge? I guess the same way as the scrushy idiot karen bowdre.

Female affirmative action, of course.

If you are going to complain about "female affirmative action", be sure that you place the blame squarely on our two Republican U.S. Senators, our Republican President, and the Republican controlled Senate. You know, the conservatives.
