Democrats do 'judicial profiling,' too

I found the recent editorial concerning President Barack Obama's judicial appointments ("Judicial profiling," June 5) a little amusing. For those of us old enough to remember the Senate confirmation hearings for Clarence Thomas and Robert Bork, both of these men were subjected to some of the most obvious forms of judicial profiling in recent history.

I'm willing to bet my 401(k) that President Obama's nominees won't be treated as badly. It seems to me that the editorial writers of The Sun continue to keep all forms of discrimination alive and well. The president will appoint people he wants and a GOP president will appoint those he likes. I think that is called human nature.

The different political parties are suppose to hold each other accountable. When we have one-party rule in any government, you have the scandal that is the IRS.
