So. Justice O'Connor retires and...
...the general sentiment among the bloggers whose political views are most closely aligned with mine is: "we're fucked." With O'Connor retiring and Rehnquist in ill health, that will present Dubya with two vacancies to fill. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
I won't be listening much to the traditional media outlets, not that I ever do, for coverage of this situation. Instead, I will be paying close attention to the opinions and analyses of bloggers whose opinions and analyses I trust. For instance:
- Bitch, PhD
- Republic of T.
- Shakespeare's Sister
This is not a complete list, of course; to make a complete list would take far too long. I also plan to keep a watchful eye on SCOTUSblog
and The Supreme Court Nomination Blog
