Sandra Day O'Connor

WASHINGTON — Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the first woman to serve on the nation's highest court, submitted a letter of retirement to President Bush on Friday, setting the stage for a contentious battle over her replacement.

O'Connor — who often provided the deciding, or swing, vote in Supreme Court decisions — will step down from the bench upon the appointment of her successor.

"It has been a great privilege indeed to have served as a member of the court for 24 terms," O'Connor wrote in the one-paragraph resignation letter. "I will leave it with enormous respect for the integrity of the court and its role under our constitutional structure."

She told the president and associates that she wanted to spend more time with her family. Her husband has been in failing health in recent years.

And yes, old teddy kennedy has already "warned" President Bush basically that it better be a liberal or there will be a filibuster ... what a shock.

I say he gets up there and announces ...

"heh heh ... I'd like to announce my nominee to the Supreme Court ... heh heh ... Judge Judy".

While teddy kennedy is having a heart attack he can then state ...

"heh heh ... now all you liberals out there don't all die on me ... heh heh ... I'd like a few around to see their faces of my next nominee ... heh heh ... Judge Joe Brown."

heh heh


In all actuality and in all seriousness ... wouldn't the nomination alone of Andrew P. Napolitano give teddy kennedy and his ilk severe anxiety ?
