Well, here comes the barrage...

And here I thought Rehnquist was gonna be the first to go. His resignation is no big deal, but O'Connor's could have implications for Roe supporters. Then again, you never know. For every Thomas or Scalia, there's also a Souter or Blackmun or Earl Warren (the latter three were also GOP nominees that came back to haunt them). That said, interesting is the case of Alberto Gonzales, current Attorney General. I find it odd that his name would be leaked by White House Sources so soon (according to Bob "No Fact" Novak, notorious right wing commentator), and that conservative opposition to his nomination is already out of the floodgates, as if they knew something in advance. Call me paranoid, but that looks like a smokescreen, and I said so in signing this petition. Gonzales is supposedly a "moderate" on the Roe topic, but let's not forget his memo implying that torture tactics are ok for interrogating prisoners. I smell a rat in this. If Dems in the house or senate are breathing a sigh of relief at this nomination, watch out!

If FB decides to reinstate the account of the former "president" tomorrow, I expect an uptick of activity here for random updates ...
