Kristol Speaks!

As I laid on the couch like a lump, soaking in two hours of Sunday morning news shows, I had the oracle speak to me. By the oracle I mean Bill Kristol. By me I mean the entire Fox viewing audience. He said that his sources tell him a few things about the vacancies on the Court. Rehnquist will retire this week. The nominees will be announced on July 26 or 27. Gonzales will be nominated for Chief.

Kristol was right about O'Connor going first and he seems to be connected well enough to the White House to be in the know. I think this is pretty bad. I don't care if Gonzales is the president's friend. That doesn't mean a thing to me. Bush said that he would nominate Justices like Scalia and Thomas to the Court. Gonzales is not like them. Maybe he promised to be more conservative, I don't know. But if this is true, it will piss off a lot of the base. This might be a move to attract more Hispanic voters to the Republican party. If Gonzales must be appointed, wait. Wait for a few years and Stevens or Ginsburg will retire. That would be a rightward shift for either seat.
