Merry X-Mas, Charlie, pick a judge

Gov. Jeb Bush said today that he won't try to shoehorn in one last appointment to the First District Court of Appeal on the day he leaves office. Bush had petitioned the Florida Supreme Court to see if he could do just that (he basically can) because Judge Richard Ervin, III, is more than 70 years old and is constitionally required to step down Jan. 1 -- a day before Jeb's successor Charlie Crist takes the helm.

"I talked to the governor about it, gave him that. That's my Christmas present," Bush said.

A good bet of the six finalists for the post: Clay Roberts, deputy attorney general who serves under Crist. More here on the court.
