Harriet, we hardly knew ye

The main upshot from White House Counsel Harriet Miers's self-withdrawal from Supreme Court consideration is that the right wing idealogues will likely win the Court. The President, in an effort to mollify the conservatives who led the "Dump Harriet" movement, will be pressured to choose another candidate from the far right, in the mold of current Supremes Antonin "Adolf" Scalia and Clarence "Coke Can" Thomas.

Too bad, really.

I wonder whether Judge Judy would be interested in the job. Or Judge Joe Brown. Or maybe even Judge Reinhold.

Or — now here's an idea — Sylvester Stallone, who has some experience after playing Judge Dredd in the film of the same name. Sly could begin each court session by bellowing from the bench, "I AM THE LAW!"
