 The Second American Civil War

Fuck! Now the Second Civil War begins:
WASHINGTON - Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the first woman appointed to the Supreme Court and a key swing vote on issues such as abortion and the death penalty, said Friday she is retiring.

O'Connor, 75, said she will leave before the start of the court's next term in October, or when the Senate confirms her successor. There was no immediate word from the White House on who might be nominated to replace O'Connor.

It's been 11 years since the last opening on the court, one of the longest uninterrupted stretches in history. O'Connor's decision gives Bush his first opportunity to appoint a justice.

It would be one thing if it was Renquist -- which everyone expected. At least then Bush would be replacing one neandertal with another; but O'Connor is a centrist. I have a bad feeling about this.

I know you'll say I'm whacked for thinkin' the Chimperor could do worse than Gonzales, but check out me blog for my reasonin'.

All I'm saying is that the country might be lucky to have the current AG on the SCOTUS instead of some other more theocratic Wingnut.
