A Radical President Selects a Radical Judge

So much for the whole “govern from the middle, build a consensus” baloney that we kept hearing during the campaign. Unfortunately, a lot of Americans believed that nonsense. We knew better–but now we’re stuck with him for 4 years (and with this “Justice” for who knows how many). Two silver linings? One, she replaces the awful David Souter, so it’s a wash in that sense, and two, they’re saying she’s pretty cantankerous and much more likely to be a loose cannon than to be a consensus builder, so hopefully she’ll not be very influential in leading others down her radical path.
