For the record, Marty Feldman was appointed by Ronald Reagan.  Surprised?

The federal judge who overturned Barack Obama's offshore drilling moratorium reported owning stock in numerous companies involved in the offshore oil industry — including Transocean, which leased the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig to BP prior to its April 20 explosion in the Gulf of Mexico — according to 2008 financial disclosure reports.

According to Feldman's 2008 financial disclosure form, posted online by Judicial Watch [pdf], the judge owned stock in Transocean, as well as five other companies that are either directly or indirectly involved in the offshore drilling business.

I'm sure there's no conflict of interest.  Nope, none.

How is this shit not mentioned by ANY of the news media in discussions about overturning the moratorium??????

Judge Faces Death Threats After BP Gulf Oil Drilling Moratorium Ruling

Much of the sensational reporting on Feldman’s investments was based on outdated information. The Judge was blasted for owning stock in Transocean, Ltd and Halliburton, two of the major companies involved in the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Feldman owned those stocks in 2008; however, he sold those shares long before issuing his ruling this week. In fact, this updated information will be released in the next report on his stock holdings.

Golly, quoting someone who thinks that the only hope the Repubs have to take the White House in 2012 is by nominating Sarah Palin sure convinces me!

Strawman.
When have I written that I think that the only hope the Repubs have to take the White House in 2012 is by nominating Sarah Palin?
I like Sarah Palin but she is not the only hope.

What say you now that more information has surfaced?
