Sen. Charles Schumer on Thursday voted against Judge John Roberts' nomination as the Supreme Court's next chief justice, saying there was a ``reasonable danger'' he will turn out like conservative Justice Clarence Thomas.
``The risk that he might be a Thomas and the lack of any reassurance that he won't _ particularly in light of this president's professed desire to nominate people in that mold _ is just not good enough,'' said Schumer, D-N.Y., a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
``I hope he is not a Thomas. But the risk is too great to bear,'' Schumer said. ``The court's balance may for decades be tipped radically in one direction.''

WGAS? Chuck's a putz...
poll needs freeping.
And Shumer continues with the high-tech lynching.
We hope he is worse than Thomas okay slimer, oppos, I mean Schumer! Jerk!
Looks like the libs loaded the poll. It stopped taking votes.
He's such a loser. But, in the long run, that is good for conservatives, even in NY.
Schumer's standard was film -- who liked what -- and he probably just didn't like the titles that Roberts provided ("North by Northwest" and something else).
/ faith in Schumer's credibility.
I did my part. The president is behind here. Seems that only the driveling, sniveling, libs/progressives read this newspaper or whatever this rag is called, so come on freepers and go to the poll.
It's actually an all news AM radio station here in NYC. Owned by Infinity (which also owns CBS) (and coincidently also owns the other leading all-news station, 880 AM WCBS). What happened to anti-trust laws? Sniveling libs dominate the media.
Schumer's an anti-Catholic bigot. He'll never vote for a real RC.
It's going to happen. Get over it Chucky, your party did lose the election (and the House, and the Senate).
The risk that he might be a Thomas ..
One can only hope.
Democrats in general are the most bigoted in our society.
What other people immediately take note of people's races, religions. and ethnic origins and assign to them a laundry list of stereotypical characteristics based on their own ignorance and prejudice?
Any Christian of any denomination who might actually practice his or her faith is suspect in the eyes of Democrats.
The only fundamentalists Democrats support are the Muslims.
No you didn't.
So, let me get this straight:
A white elected official
doesn't want a white appointed judge
to turn out like a black appointed judge.
My brain hurts with thinking of all the ironies.
Sounds like Chuck is the type of guy who needs to read his horoscope each day before he'll leave his home.
Schumer the Quack Fortune Teller
Chuck emerged from his self-induced trance,
And decided he can't take a chance,
'Cause the odds are so awful,
That Roberts' too lawful.
(Schumer peeks at foes' cards in advance).
