NBC: David Souter To Retire From Supreme Court


It's that time of year again and now NBC says they have information that one of the worst mistakes a Republican President has ever made will be retiring.

NPR has it as well.

Waiting for a Democrat to win the Presidency is the perfect way for this unimpressive guy to go out.

And once again, a big shout out to George H. W. Bush, Warren Rudman and John Sununu for foisting this guy on us. At least Bush made up for it with Clarence Thomas.

Thanks to the cowardly Arelen Specter, we have no hope of slowing down whatever leftist douche Obama sends up.

Something I never thought I'd say...God I hope Anthony Kennedy doesn't retire anytime soon. At least there's a chance the coin flip will go our way every once and a while.

WaPo early list of possible replacements

Some of the names that have been circulating include recently confirmed Solicitor General Elena Kagan; U.S. Appeals Court Judges Sonya Sotomayor, Kim McLane Wardlaw, Sandra Lea Lynch and Diane Pamela Wood; and Leah Ward Sears, chief justice of the Georgia Supreme Court.

Sotomayor has to be the front runner. A woman and a Hispanic? That's a double whammy.
