    Gee, what a surprise that he only received a "qualified" rating instead of highly qualified by the City Bar Association. Probably a reason I‘m not a member. I doubt that any judicial nominee nominated by a Republican president has ever received a "highly qualified" rating from the City Bar Association! And I probably doubt that any judicial nominee nominated by a Democratic President has received any other rating other than "highly qualified".
