Christopher Buckley's satire is trained on that most hallowed of legal institutions - the U.S. Supreme Court.
The President of the US is hated by Congress for refusing to sign any spending bill sent to him. The Senate has retaliated by refusing to confirm his Supreme Court nominees - his arch-nemises implies that one of the nominees is a racist because the review of "To Kill A Mockingbird" that he wrote in the elementary school newspaper said "Though the picture overall is OK, it's also kind of boring in other parts." The President one-ups the Senate by nominating a judge so popular with the American people that confirmation is assured - Judge Pepper Cartwright, star of "Courtroom Six," the most popular reality TV show in the country. Can the President, the Judge, and the Court survive?
