Liberals call Judge Jones the "Horsewoman of the Right Wing Apocalypse." She's extremely conservative but not a likely candidate to replace O'Connor because she wrote an opinion affirming a death penalty conviction where the defendant's lawyer slept during trial. It wasn't nearly as bad as it sounds, but that opinion has followed her ever since.

Why should she be blamed and held accountable to something that the defendant's lawyer did ?
She was just following the law, it's the defendant's fault if they hired a incompetent lawyer.
