Next recess appointment: Darth Vader

Remember William Pryor, one of Bush's filibustered judicial appointments? The guy I once compared to Torquemada? Bush has gone around the Senate and put him on the bench in a recess appointment (as he did with Charles Pickering, on Martin Luther King Day just in case we weren't sure which part of the Republican base he was looking to with that one).

Maybe he saw the poll numbers and wants to get all his theocrats installed in the courts before we throw him out of office in November. There's a bright side to everything, right?
