O'Connor - First to Go
Sandra Day O'Connor, the first woman on the Supreme Court and a swing vote on abortion as well as other contentious issues, announced her retirement Friday. A bruising Senate confirmation struggle loomed as President Bush selects a successor.[Synaptic emphasis]Loomed? Is it already over? Personally, I think the bitch should have hung on 'til 2008 (with death her only out) after what her treasonous action in December 2000 wrought.
Update: Well, I guess her staying on to compensate was never going to happen - Digby has more on O'Connor, of which I was not aware. Okay, I'm thoroughly disgusted by her now. It's times like these I wish I believed in God and, conversely, in hell - because that's where she should rot.
