Update: Michael Boggs will not be Judge Michael Boggs
Next up, we have two bits of Good News in the form of Updates.
The first relates to something from the end of May. I gave the Clown Award to Michael Boggs, nominated by the Amazing Mr. O to the federal court in Georgia despite a record as a Georgia legislator that included opposition to LGBT rights, civil rights, and the right to choose, among other things, including supporting a bill that would have required physicians to publicly post their address along with the number of abortions they performed each year while lamely claiming he had no idea that this would put them in any danger.
The Update that brings the Good News?
Last week, Sen. Patrick Leahy, chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said there is not enough support among Democrats on the committee to move Boggs' nomination forward. According to Leahy, Boggs "doesn’t have the votes.”
So it appears that some things can be too much to swallow even for the Obamabots. That sounds like Good News to me.
