Senator Feingold on O'Connor's Retirement

Received by e-mail, here's a portion:

This is the first Supreme Court vacancy in more than a decade, and Justice O’Connor’s replacement will greatly influence the future of our country. President Bush once claimed to be “a uniter, not a divider.” It is now his call whether he wants to launch a huge, divisive political battle with his choice or seek consensus and bring the nation together. I call on the President to work with members of Congress from both parties to select a nominee behind whom the entire country can unite.

    Based on precedent, with this admin you can safely bet on the first choice above. The old saying "hope for the best but prepare for the worst" has been updated to "expect the worst but prepare for something even worse than that".

    I prefer, "Ignore the nominee's white hood and enter the fetal position."
