So Justice Stevens Justice Stevens Justice Stevens!
It’s good to see there won’t be any prejudging of whomever Obama picks as his replacement (headline — “The question for conservatives will be not whether but how to oppose Obama’s nominee”):
No doubt some Republicans will say that it is unimportant to fight the nominee because Obama will merely be replacing one liberal with another rather than changing the balance of the Court. But the choice before any Republican senator is whether to acquiesce to several more decades of liberal activism on the bench. Unless Obama provides evidence of having dropped his litmus tests, the question for conservatives will be not whether but how to oppose Obama’s nominee.
That’s a relief — at least we can look forward to some nice quiet months ahead, filled with rational, thoughtful and intelligent discussions of the law and its proper place in American society.Onward to the weekend, which I hope for you all starts about now.
The agenda for me includes staying off of Facebook, paying close attention to my credit card charges, and getting more sleep.
BTW, it’s not too late to sign up for Baynanza — let’s face it, you owe it to Biscayne Bay.
Have a great weekend!
