Bush Eyes Magic 8 Ball To Replace O'Connor

Posted by a4g @ 7/09/2005 06:10:00 AM

As speculation and high drama swirls around a possible second vacancy on the Supreme Court, Senate Democrats reasserted demands that President Bush stay away from so-called "extreme right-wing" conservative nominees. "If he is true to his promise, he will use Justice O'Connor as a role model," said Senator Barbara Boxer.

Magic 8 Ball has maneuvered ahead of Ouija Board in the battle for the Supreme Court

The buzz inside the beltway is that the President has taken the call seriously, and in the name of bi-partisanship, has rejected names like Garza, Brown and Luttig. The name that has quickly moved to the very top of the short list has suddenly become "Magic 8 Ball."

The Magic 8 Ball has a distinguished, but mixed, judicial record. Often accused of inconsistency, the ball's views on many hot-button topics such as abortion and property-rights have been described by supporters as balanced and fair, but by detractors as inscrutable.

So, will Bush choose the Magic 8 Ball to replace O'Connor?

Signs point to Yes.

The Magic 8 ball statements on worker right issuse are too inconsistent. Labor on not just “yes” or “no” issu So maybe The 9th circuit court of appeals has an opening.

Long live the Labor Movement
