Sammy Sosa on the SCOTUS! That would be pretty cool.

Cute.

I realize the Dems are already blaming the "radical right wing". More interesting posturing to come.

the conservative right and the liberal left should hop in a car together and drive off a cliff ala thelma and louise.

perhaps then we'll be left with the logical middle.

I'm be interested to hear how you and others on here define 'left' and 'right', as I tend to think the US system is geared towards the right wing anyway compared to Europe (or conversely, the EU system is more geared towards the left compared with the United States).

For example, U2democrat seems to support mainly relatively mainstream Democrat candidates (correct me if I'm wrong U2democrat ), but sees herself as being on the 'liberal left'.

There are only about 2 or 3 genuine socialists that contribute to FYM, all of the rest of us broadly are on favour of the capitalist system to a greater or lesser extent.

This is all foolishness. The Dems killed the nom just as much as the radical right wing did. Reid was the only one who was pulling for her; everyone else was staunchly opposed.

It's silly that the Dems are blaming a minority group for politicizing this, when they did as much politicizing as anybody. Her nomination was doomed from the outset.

I agree with your assessment of me.

Edited to add: I personally am usually further left than the candidates I support.

I believe it is the function of an opposition to provide opposition.
I believe this is called politics.

no way.

the Dems have said basically nothing on her nomination, aside from Reid saying that he liked her and Nancy Pelosi (i think) wondering if she wasn't getting a tougher shake-down from the right because she was a woman.

the played smart politics; as you know, as Ronan Keating once sang, "you say it best when you say nothing at all."

the Right is very happy about this -- Bill Kristol, the National Review, Ann Coulter, etc., have been begging for her resignation for weeks, and now claiming it as a victory for the right.

her nomination was doomed the minute Bush thought his personal lawyer who, btw, thinks that he's the most brilliant man she's ever met, would make a fine supreme court justice.

this is the Right Wing fighting a civil war.

and it was a healthy one -- it was the intellectuals vs. the dynasty.
