Fred Cox... er, Chris Cox for SCOTUS?



Hedgehog blog is suggesting that Chris Cox might be a good choice for SCOTUS. He provides the following rationale:
  • He's recently been through the congressional approval process, which Hugh Hewitt notes is a significant advantage.
  • He's not one of the previously "anointed" group of conservative legal titans that many on the right were promoting. He is in some respects a "third way" nomination and his appointment would thus be face-saving for President Bush.
  • He's never been a judge or an academic, so he's a little like Harriet Miers in that regard.
  • The NRO Corner crowd evidently likes him. See, for example, this post on NRO by Quin Hilyer.
  • Cox is a credentialed judicial conservative.
  • He's telegenic as all get-out. Politically, the Democrats would have a terrible time trying to sink him.
I've always liked Chris Cox; I had hoped in 2000 that Bush would choose him for VP. I can't imagine a more exciting nominee.

The following picture shows Fred Cox, a former placekicker for the Minnesota Vikings and the inventor of the NERF Football. Just a gut feeling, but I don't think he's qualified for SCOTUS.

Why not Fred Cox? Alan Page, another former Viking, made a meteoric rise from post-football law student to Supreme Court Justice in Minnesota. Justice Page does a fine job of finding penumbric nuances in the law and is not shy about legislating from the bench...oops! Never mind.

When you use other people's pictures, you really ought to give them credit. Fred Cox in the Vintage Football Card Gallery
