The Coming Storm

Well...that didn't take long. Sandra "Roe" O'Conner has announced her retirement. She was hired as a mildly strict-constructionist conservative, but, as the lefties say, she "grew in office"--into one of the favorites of the left, largely because of her defense of Roe v. Wade. Many of the usual suspects are thus unhappy about her retirement. This, if nothing else, is evidence that her departure will be a good thing for the republic.

Buh bye, Sandy! We luv 'ya! Don't let big, carved door hit 'ya on the way out!

Now the question of Renquist's retirement becomes even more urgent. Will he announce in the next few days? During the coming term? SCOTUSblog has a good analysis. They advocate picking some pablum-puking compromise "of unquestioned reputation" (and thus no beliefs), however. That's how we got O'Connor, Souter, and Kennedy. Yeah. Great idea. I say, first nominee: Robert Bork. Second: Janice Rogers Brown--just to really p*** off the lefties--and elevate Scalia to Chief Justice.

Mwahahahahaha! Dubya might have two vacancies to fill! Kos is already apoplectic about it! I don't care if Bush nominates Snoopy to the court; the coming thrash within CampLeft will resemble a West Texas hailstorm. It'll be fun to watch--from a distance. Desiccated bluestockings and precious little metrosexuals will be dropping dead of aneurisms in fern bars and Whole Foods throughout Blue America. I. CAN'T. WAIT! (Besides, Snoopy will be a decided improvement over several sitting members of the court.)

Don't give in, George! Don't let up until you have your knee on Harry Reid's chest with a knife at his throat and Dick Durbin's curled up into a crying fetal ball. If they try to filibuster, nuke 'em till they glow! Mwahahahaha!
