Why not a woman?

Liberals are all about having President Bush select a woman to fill the vacant seat on the Supreme Court. It's soooo important!

Examples here and here.

But what about the fact that there are no female anchors on the always Liberal network nightly news shows? For years it has been the three men: Peter Jennings, Dan Rather, and Tom Brokaw.

Peter Jennings has died, Dan Rather has disgracefully retired, and Tom Brokaw has retired and been replaced by Brian Williams.

Now, apparently, ABC, CBS Secretly Searching for Anchors.

Frankly, I could cheerfully wish the nightly network news shows to oblivion and I really don't care if they have a man, woman, or monkey "anchoring" (aka reading teleprompters).

But where is all the discussion from the Liberal elites about how a woman should be chosen? Apparently they only talk about such things when a Republican is doing the appointing.
