Looks like Alito is a shoe-in for O'Connor's seat, and reproductive policies deeply unpopular with 65% of the electorate will likely become the law of the land.
Not to mention the fact that everything Nixon and Reagan got into trouble for, and the stuff Bush should be getting in trouble for, will soon be perfectly legal as well. After all, don't we need an Executive completely free to do whatever the fuck he feels like in order to save us from terror? "The only thing to fear is fear itself"? That shit's for pussies! The President can tell us what to fear, and can save us from it without worrying about bullshit technicalities like laws.
Welcome to John Yoo's America, folks! In our new and improved democracy we have eliminated nasty inconveniences like The Bill of Rights. Everyone knows it only benefits Commies, Queers, and Osama anyhow. And soon the wretched two-party system will end when the Donkey and the Elephant complete their merger. Mergers make things much more efficient! What better way to get money out of the election cycle than to elminate the election cycle? Imagine the time saved when you no longer have to agonize over which rich honkey to vote for? The American Revolution has run its course, and we're back to a limited monarchy. Love it or leave it! And if you're one of those nerds who actually likes voting--don't worry, there's always American Idol.
We get the government we deserve.
[Of course there's always the chance that Alito and Roberts are turn-coat Libs in wolf's clothing--it's happened before]
