Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

Justice O'Connor Retiring
Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the first woman on the Supreme Court, and the swing vote on a lot of issues, is retiring. It's hard to stress enough that this is a HUGE DEAL. For many people, Justice O'Connor has represented the vote on the Court protecting abortion rights. If Bush can replace her with a hard-right conservative (not easy), many many issues including abortion will be up in the air.
DAMN IT, THIS IS WHY WE HAVE TO ELECT DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTS.
