Justice O'Connor a Liberal?
Few would characterize Justice O'Connor as a liberal -- it might be a bit of a stretch even to label her a moderate, although the label fits when she's compared to some other members of the federal judiciary -- but she was too far to the left for Reverend Flip Benham, Director of Operation Save America, who is happy to see her go:
"Although we applaud her decision to step down and care for her ailing husband, her 'swing-vote' status on the Supreme Court over the issues of abortion and homosexual rights wrought more havoc upon our nation than our foreign enemies ever have."
All but branding Justice O'Connor as a terrorist is over the top, even for right wing extremists, but those are the folks President Bush will likely try to appease when he nominates her replacement. Frightening times lie ahead.
