In a surprise move, Sandra Day O'Connor announced her retirement from the Supreme Court today. Her retirement will be effective the day a replacement is confirmed. This could be the first of three SCOTUS judges to resign during Bush's second term.
This could lead to a radical remake of the rule of law in the US. A stacking of conservative judges on the bench is something we must oppose at all costs including risking making the republicans invoke the nuclear option. I don't understand why conservatives want to nominate judges that try to move us back to the 19th century. Can't they just go live with the Amish?
