Breaking: Supreme Court vacancy

"With Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's resignation today, I have a prediction," writes David Sirota: "O'Connor and Chief Justice William Rehnquist will both retire...Karl Rove will have Bush put up one crazy, wild-eyed conservative lunatic in the John Ashcroft mold, and one hard-right winger who seems 'moderate' compared to the crazy...the lunatic goes down to defeat, but the hard-right winger gets through, and Bush replaces the lunatic with another hard-right winger as a 'compromise.' Let's hope Democrats are ready for this two-step." (Sirotablog)
