Of course they are political appointments (though not patronage ones). The lifetime thing means you occasionally end up with something you weren't planning on, but that's by mistake (e.g. Bush sr.'s appointment of David Souter, and while Anthony Kennedy is pretty conservative, he isn't full on wingnut) I wouldn't say that the Dems have been particularly bipartisan in that regard - Ginsburg and Breyer were meant to be on the liberal wing of the court, and they are.
