News Flash: Rehnquist Dead

Chief Justice Rehnquist Dies at His Home

So will O’Conner come back into the court? Doubtful; she’s had a bunch of stuff to deal with. Besides, her putative successor is already being looked at.

I hope that Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales gets to replace Rehnquist. I would expect another right-winger to replace this right-winger, with Gonzales replacing a liberal (if allowed). Again, I would expect him to put Scalia instead of Thomas as head justice, though Bush Jr. could put anyone as head justice.

Finally, I get the impression that Rehnquist’s last statement was “I told you I’d outlast that liberal bitch in the court.”
