Supreme Court Suggestion

Since I know President Bush reads my blog somewhat regularly, I would like to offer him this advice: Don't choose a justice based on the abortion issue. You cannot win. And you will be squandering an opportunity to protect the individual rights and liberties of the citizens you serve. Don't do it! Don't even think about it! Stop it now! I know what you're thinking, so knock it off! Don't make me furl my brow at you.

Instead, choose a strong supporter of individual rights and constitutional originalism (if I'm using that term correctly). Basically, we want a justice who will support the first, second and fourth amendments (and, um, all the other ones...) from an individual rights point of view. And please punch the congress in the face when they step on the fifth amdendment also.

There once was a Learned Hand and his name was neat. What we need now is a Smacking Hand, to smack the government around a fair bit when it gets out of line.

In fact, just nominate Kozinski now and be done with it. And have him change his name to Smacking Hand.

And Kevin, you picked a bad time to Screw it! No?

"Justice Smacking Hand"

That does have a nice ring. Maybe with a hypen so he is always referred as Smacking-Hand.

"Justice Hand dissented saying 'This court is staffed with idiots'"

or

"Justice Smacking-Hand dissented saying 'This court is staffed with idiots'"

Either way, let the smacking begin!

Kozinski gets to replace Rehnquist when he kicks (he's not going to resign - they're going to have to scrape his rotting corpse out of that chair).

But "Smacking Hand"?

I LIKE IT! :-)
