Four Bush court nominees pull out

Conceding to the Senate's new Democratic majority, four of Bush's appeals court appointees have asked to have their nominations withdrawn. William Haynes, William Myers and Terrence Boyle had all decided to abandon their quest for confirmation. Last month Michael Wallace also asked Bush to withdraw his nomination.

It's a shame Bush has been allowed to fill the courts with wing-nut extremist judges for the last 6 years. At least now the Democratic majority can put a stop to this madness.
