Sandra Day Is Out!

Fox News is reporting that Sandra Day O'Connor's retirement is imminent. The announcement is expected Friday.

Although Justice O'Connor was on the right side in Kelo v. City of New London, she has been the swing voter in so many crappy Supreme Court opinions, i am glad to be rid of her.

In fact, she was my submission to this poll for that reason.

i hope that a solid conservative is nominated to replace her, although i guess the conventional wisdom would be that the Senate would only support a moderate to replace a moderate. And with the minority party feeling its oats lately, who knows what "moderate" means. They'll bend Frist over and have their way with him no matter who is nominated.

Correction, Frist will grab his own ankles willingly and invite the Democrats and RINOs to bang away to their heart's content.

This should be ugly.

Ugly = interesting, and winable.

It is fitting that the Republic may be reborn on the Fourth. There will be labor pains, and a little blood.

This is an interesting moment. The Dems are utterly without viable ideas, without workable goals, and without sound governing philosophy. The Democratic emperor is parading about without any clothes.

Sooner or later, the stupid party(Repubs) will notice, and they will stand up and begin to govern(very gingerly, very afraid - like a prey animal ready to flee the area at the slightest provocation). The stupids will do this almost in spite of themselves, and in spite of their instincts to: "Run away, run away and hide(from media controversy)." The blogs and the other new media will play a role in opening the eyes of the stupids, and in educating the electorate - which will further open Washington eyes.

Is this a moment when Republican eyes are opened to the weakness of the Democrat Party? I don't know, but I'm certainly watching with interest.

As for Sandra Day O'Connor, I will pay her the honor of criticizing her like a man: SHE ABSOLUTELY SUCKED. She was completely friggin gutless. It always seemed to me that her decisions had more to do with avoiding controversy than with following the freaking law.

She came in advertised as this tough, independent minded Western Woman. I love women like that. Heck, I love all people who are like that. But, from my vantage point in the nation's end zone, she turned out to be anything but tough, and anything but independent. She was a sheep, and she made my stomach turn.

I doubt the President will nominate anyone considered "moderate." He has not done so with any of his other nominees.

But whoever he nominates, unless the Repub machine is ready to twist the arms of the rinos then nothing gets done.
