It will be interesting to see if Obama can appoint someone that this Senate will confirm.  I would guess that the Ted Cruzes of the world would rather die than agree to any Obama  appointee.  Assuming that the Republicans follow tradition and do not filibuster a Supreme Court nominee, are there 4 Senate Republicans that will vote to approve a nominee?  This quandary may force Obama to pick someone much more conservative that he might prefer, or someone much older so that the Republicans might be convinced will die soon enough to warrant confirmation.

Maybe we'll get lucky and he'll pick Hillary.

Scalia was an asshole, and I'm glad he's dead.
However, I'll save my dancing for when that useless, incompetent, blockhead sexual-harassing sycophant Clarence Thomas chokes on his own blood.  May it be soon.

He always does whatever Scalia does, so there's that hope at least.
I hope the Senate Republicans do filibuster and delay in fits of rage. The Democratic nominee can ride that all the way to the White House.

One thing about being on Facebook:  stuff pops up fast in there--and it ain't always Minion memes.

Borg rolls 2d6 (12).  Advances past GO.  More liberty extinguished, more wealth eradicated.  Collect $200m for Clinton Foundation.

Meh.  The SuperPACs are destroying our Republic, it doesn't matter a whole lot who's the President.  The game's 100% rigged now instead of 51 - 75% rigged.  If we rose up as a voting nation and continually voted out every incumbent in Congress each election, they'd just pass a law making their terms 50 years or something.

As our real founding father Thomas Jefferson said, and not the one the Tea Baggers believe in, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."   The tyrants are the uber wealthy and financial industries, the patriots are us, and we're all too fat and comfortable to do anything about it. So, hello Brave New World.

Yes it is. 

There have been other odd couples, like Daniel Schorr and Frank Zappa, but when it bridges a political gulf it is especially cool.

One thing for sure.  Judge Scalia had a reasoned logic  the majority of his detractors would find unengagable ...any subsequent intellectual tête-à-tête would no doubt vanquish the remainder.

It's raining; it's pouring.
The old man is snoring.
He went to bed and bumped his head,
And he wouldn't get up in the morning.
