Reports: Souter to Retire

From NYT:

WASHINGTON — Justice David H. Souter has indicated that he plans to retire at the end of the term in June, giving President Obama his first appointment to the Supreme Court, three people informed about the decision said Thursday night.

Justice Souter, who was appointed by a Republican president, George
Bush, but became one of the most reliable members of the court’s
liberal wing, has grown increasingly sour on Washington and intends to
return to his home state, New Hampshire, according to the people
briefed on his plans. His decision was first reported by National Public Radio.

  1. May I be an early adopter in saying:
    President Obama,
    Even if you were to nominate Atilla the Hun, the neocons would say “too liberal”. Additionally, the Court is way out of balance. So please do not capitulate in this critical decision.

  2. fuck the rite. taint he one of the Bush 5? damn straight he had to wait. any BLACK females on the list? would be awesome if he got to name more women.
    maybe clarence will drop dead w/ a porn mag in his hands.

  3. After thinking about Obama’s desire to please the fascists and monsters of the right, it’s clear there’s really only one selection that he’ll seriously consider: Jay Bybee.
