Not So Fast, Bonzo: Rehnquist Staying on Court

In a surprise announcement today, aging and ailing Chief Justice Rehnquist says he's not going anywhere. Read the NY Times story and weep, Preznent Smirking Chimp.

Word on the street had it for four long years that Rehnquist wanted to step down, but was afraid of who Fearless Leader Numnutz would install in his place. I thought it was all a load of crap, wishful thinking by some of my fellow travelers on the left who had more time than brains. Apparently it wasn't.

Rehnquist! In my wildest drug-induced alcohol-fueled sleep-deprived Hunter S. Thompson-like nightmare fantasy, I never thought I would see the day that I would be fervently hoping that Rehnquist would stay on the court.

Jesus, what a world.
