    Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead today. RIP

    This means Obama will have a chance to appoint another liberal judge to the Court. The republicans will probably roll over and approve his choice. Can you say Eric Holder?:(

    Hopefully the Republicans have the stones to block. My phone wanted to correct "Republicans" to "rubbishes" so that's probably a bad sign.

    Especially since he is the leading conservative voice on the court. If the Senate does not hold down the selection of the next supreme until after next January then this country could very easily be on the brink of a real war on American Soil. An Obama appointee cannot be tolerated under any conditions. A battle to stop that possibility needs to be on everyone minds right now.

    Prayers out to his family for their loss. Prayers out to the US for ours. Buckle your seatbelts, this is going to be rough!

    I hope the Republican leadership has the ba!!s to block another Obama appointment. They were goo-goo eyed for the last two.
    I feel sick to my stomach with this news, some hairy times ahead for sure.

    I recently re-registered as a Republican. All they have done so far is disappoint me.
    Hopefully they will have the cajones to block any liberal appointees Obama makes.

    I haven't been a Republican since a tribe of Mike Huckabee Jonestowners invaded my precinct and at the '08 Caucuses basically told the rest of us "if you're not with us you're too stupid to be allowed to vote," and then proceeded to refuse to allow our votes to be recorded.

    Since then, I support individual candidates only.

    RIP honestly this is very bad. May he rest in peace. He was a great mind and a friend to our cause. Things may get rough now. Our best bet is to not pass any nominations till the next election.

    And pray that no important cases come before the Court while it's 3 Pinko Commie Douchewaffles, 2 right-spectrumers, one alcoholic switch-hitter and one turncoat semi-Prog.
