Ron Johnson's Search For Judges Now More Complicated

We know that newbie Tea Party US Senator Ron Johnson thinks the Constitution gives him the right to pick federal judicial nominees - - an excellent discussion is here - - thus he's blocked a UW-Madison law school professor's nomination to the US Court of Appeals by President Barack Obama.

Regrettably, Johnson can now block a second nomination, as the President will have to replace the legendary Terence Evans who passed away last week.

This means Johnson has to come up with the names of two candidates with degrees in law and at least a minor in sorcery, and that is no easy task.
