Musical chairs, anyone?
posted by Last Night in Little Rock
Pat Robertson, of the 700 Club, who fervently prayed for vacancies on the Supreme Court, when not asking the government to assassinate a foreign president, got his prayer answered on Saturday night with the death of Chief Justice William Rehnquist.
It was not the vacancy he was hoping for.
Now the game of musical chairs begins. Justice Antonin Scalia, appointed by Reagan in 1986 will undoubtedly move to Chief. He's a known quantity, so confirmation by the Republican Senate will be quick.
Who, then, to replace Scalia?
