"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

Don't Be Surprised

There is a rumor running through Washington that Hillary Rodham Clinton may get the nomination to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Stephens. Now wouldn't that be interesting. Someone who has vocalized freely that she likens herself to an early 20th century Progressive, getting the nod from Obama. And what are the chances, after all the positions she's held, that she would not be confirmed. The only good thing that would come out of that nomination would be that she is around 60, and would impact judicial Supreme Court rulings for only a quarter century or less! Now that I think of it, I can't see Obama nominating anyone that old...

If You Aren't Outraged, You Aren't Paying Attention
