Which is why I blame the 17th Amendment...

McDonald, Constitutional Theory, and the Confirmation Process; The Volokh Conspiracy Blog

From a recent commenter on The Volokh Conspiracy Blog:
Chris Travers says:

This section explains how people get on the Supreme Court: the President nominates, the Senate confirms, and the President then appoints. In other words, Supreme Court Justices must be nominated, confirmed, and appointed by politicians.

Which is why I blame the 17th Amendment.....

Comment: Right on Chris! The judicial confirmation process is another important reason to repeal the 17th!
