Will the Next High Court Nominee be a... Gay Catholic?

Just kidding about the headline; I guess I'll do anything to get readership!

But seriously, there are all kinds of rumors about who President Bush will choose for the Justice O'Connor's seat -- and a nomination is probably likely very soon.

Like the multi-headed hydra, prospect of a Justice Alberto Gonzales is the beast that will not die, but keeps rising up no matter how many times one lops off a head.

The tide of angst is rising like a storm surge at Confirm Them, where Marshall Manson writes, "with the President’s supporters already on edge over the raft of new federal spending, I fear an open revolt if he selects the Attorney General to serve on the Supreme Court."

I, on the other hand, do not "fear it"--I welcome it!

Recall the words of perhaps our greatest president, Thomas Jefferson:

"I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing,
and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.... It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of the government." (Letter to James Madison.)

If he fails to nominate a judge in the mold of Scalia or Thomas, the Republican Party is in serious trouble.
He must do this and force the democrats to filibuster or accept.
