There are about 10 choices better than Clement that I can name offhand - other than the interest in her before Roberts' nomination, I have no idea where the buzz is coming from. If you want someone from the 5th cir., take Edith Jones.

Look at everything that's happening right now:

1 - Hurricane Katrina
2 - Iraq Constitution and Iraq War
3 - Afghan Elections coming up
4 - Iran situation w/ Iranian Pres. coming to UN
5 - Sept. 11 Anniversary
6 - Resumed talks w/ N. Korea
7 - Rehnquist death and TWO Supreme Court nominees
8 - UN oil-food-scandal and charges being filed
9 - Gaza pullout

10 - Oh, and another storm brewing in the Atlantic!

President Bush needs our prayers more now than ever.

Fangs are out. Susan is trying to take down Mark Levin. Hey Susan, do you fear mark? Maybe because he's RIGHT and your IQ isn't even in the same ball park?

I just watched the marathon on the Hallmark channel two weeks ago. Little House has been and always will be my FAVORITE show of all time. It's on the Hallmark channel every day from 1-3 mountain time.

I still cry like a baby. Especially the last episode when they blow up Walnut Grove.

Everyone knew he was sick, all one had to do was look at him.

I think Rehnquist probably had to know that he wasn't going to make it even to the end of the next SCOTUS term. He probably planned on retiring after Roberts was confirmed, so that the President wouldn't have to try and shepherd two nominations through an extremely hostile Senate at the same time. Not only did God screw up those plans, but He decided to make thiongs really interesting by sending Katrina right smack in the middle of it all.

I understand that feeling. I quit a job once on the day I was hired because they gave me 666 for an employee number. However, that nor post 666 has nothing whatsover to do with the mark of the beast as spoke of in Revelations

Maybe I'm stupid, but what exactly is the distinction of the Chief Justice of the SC? What sets that position apart from the other justices.

Bush gets a chance to put TWO freepers on the bench

Don't I wish!! If that ever happens who should it be


I nominate Lazmataz. I will never forget his comment about poofsters during his acceptance speech for being nominated the next pope.

He would adhere to the no poofster marriage law.

Susan espoused that Scalia wouldnt be made CJ because he couldn't swing people the way Rehnquist did.

There is the Formal duty side of the CJ like signing opinions and then there is the informal importance of the CJ.

Who is this Mark Levine on Fox tonight? He is so funny!! Susan accused him earlier of sticking to the "conservative talking points." Then Hannity asked him a question and Levine said, "That is not on my Conservative Talking points list so I do not know how to answer." HILLAROUS!!

I don't know about the other cable networks because I'm too lazy to get up and walk across the room and get the clicker, but from the minute that Fox finally announced that Rehnquist had died, they have blown away their SPECIAL COVERAGE of hurricane damage with its own special dreary music and switched to 24/7 LIVE coverage on a Saturday nite with Hannity, Colmes, Susan Estrich, the Judge from N.J., etc. It's 12:40 a.m. and this has been on for hours because the press likes this story much more than the one about unimportant ordinary citizens suffering and being rescued by the vile US military. They all care about who will make the court and none of them care about regular people so they will beat this story until there is nothing left of it. We'll be lucky to hear a blurb on the hour about the hurricane damage.

We could find a Black conservative Judge and ask her if she would do us a favor and change her religious preference to Jewish. She does not have to change her eating habits, but I could show her how to make a mean Chicken and Matzoh ball soup that she could tell everyone was Chicken and Dumplings. It has worked for me when I have served it to real southern Country Folk.

"Sources in the White House say that President AC is going to nominate Mayor Nagin to replace Justice Rehnquist."

I'd go along with that nomination just to get the guy in a Senate committee and have someone ask him how he "takes the edge of his joneses".
