Bush, Roberts, and that pesky Constitution

Via Froomkin:

The President said, 'I just offered the job to a great, smart, 50-year-old lawyer who has agreed to serve on the bench.'

Section. 2., Clause 2:

[The President] shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court...

Bush: "Roberts, ol' buddy, the job is yours."
Roberts: "Um, don't I need to go before the Senate first?"
Bush: "Dammit! I always forget about them. Karl! I thought you said we'd be done with the Consitution by now."
Rove: "Working on it, Mr. President."
