Rumor Monger

I'm usually not one to trade in rumors, but I have it on good authority that Justice John Paul Stevens will be retiring from the Supreme Court at the end of this term. I also have it on good authority that the White House is aware of this. I guess it may be time for me to be shocked.

Of course, this might be totally wrong, or Justice Stevens may change his mind (as Supreme Court Justices are prone to do), but I trust this information right now. Now that I've said that, I'm sure Stevens will stay on the Court and make me look like an idiot. Do your worst, bow tie.

Quite the prognosticator! Hope you're right and that Bush goes for a decent justice, and has the backbone to fight for it. Not abandone him/her the way Bork was fed to the fishes.

Well, this comes from a guy who has been right about every major move the White House has made on Supreme Court Justices. The weekend before the Alito nomination, he said that the finalists had been Alito and Michael Luttig. NO ONE had been talking about Alito at that point. But this guy knew; he called it (among other predictions).

If Stevens still goes through with it, the White House will be ready to roll, hitting the ground running. They need to use this opportunity to rally the base behind them. They need a knock out pick.
