Supreme Courtship by Christopher Buckley

Supreme Courtship finds the unpopular President of the United States unable to get his Supreme Court nominees past the senator who is chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Dexter Mitchell. Frustrated, he outmaneuvers Mitchell by nominating Pepper Cartwright, a judge on a television reality show. She's so popular that her nomination breezes through the Senate. Once on the court, she begins an affair with the chief justice. Mitchell is so undone by her nomination that he leaves the Senate and takes a role on a television show where he plays a fictional president. He becomes so popular that he runs for the presidency for real. The election is so close that it ends up before the Supreme Court. Christopher Buckley's satire has received mostly positive reviews with the Seattle Times saying, "There's much more to Supreme Courtship, which I can't reveal without ruining the pleasure. Just take my word for it, and the word is: delicious."
