Just when I think the New York Times can't get any worse:

The new vacancy is likely to mobilize lobbying groups around heated political and social issues, like abortion, and may prompt Democrats to urge the president not to pick a far-right conservative for the court. But given Mr. Bush's history of acting boldly when he is under pressure, as he is now with the war and Gulf Coast disaster, the Democrats will not be surprised if Mr. Bush picks someone not to their liking.
