Adios Swingin' Sandy
Swingin' Sandy Day O'Connor is going away. Now, I ain't going to celebrate until I see who GWB appoints. I'm going to hold my breath (and hopefully not my nose) until the appointment.
Just a thought on Miss Swing Vote.And God's sense of humor:
My most vivid memory of our top unpredictable female politician in a black robe (Justice Ruth "Buzzy" Ginsburg is entirely predictable) is this picture (to the left, of couse. Irony? Wink, wink, nudge, nudge?!?!?) from almost exactly two years ago.
The event was a dual event: the awarding of the Liberty Medal at the dedication and opening of the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.
A mural and frame fell on the front row of honored speakers on the dais.
The incredible irony in all this was the combination of this event, where it happened, when and to whom came just days after Swingin' Sandy sided with the majority in finding McCain/Feingold constitutional (McCain/Feingold is also known as the badly and bogusly named Bi-Partisan Campaign Finance Reform Act). As soon as I saw the picture and description, I again thought "In The Lord's world there are no accidents and there is no happenstance."
If I had been Swingin' Sandy's counselor, I'd have advised her to immediately give back the medal, do a very public mea culpa after announcing her resignation, wear sackcloth underwear for the rest of her life and be a Johnny Appleseed of liberty by giving away copies of the Federalist Papers and "The Law" by Bastiat to anyone she met.
Now, the incredible importance of this resignation:
Swingin' Sandy was a/the swing vote on many issues. GWB needs to follow though on his comments that Scalia and Thomas are his models for Supreme Court appointments. The fact that the lefties are losing the swing vote is going to prove for very predictable actions by the usual gang of extreme constitutional criminals in the Senate.
I would HEARTILY recommend Janice Rogers Brown...this afternoon. No, on second thought, make the announcement on the 4th of July. In Philadelphia. At the National Constitution Center.
