Around tomorrow (WED. 2/17) at 2:30 Eastern)? Will your brain be in gear? If so feel free to call in at tell me your truth about filling the suddenly vacated Supreme Court seat in the 11 months before the next President touches the Bible. Call (718) 664-6966 then and make sure your phone number is not blocked — (718) 664-6966.

You can be sure I'll have my opinions and I shall fill the slot without you if that's hjow you want it.

Consider:

  • President Barack Obama has a Constitutional duty to nominate a replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia.
  • The GOP has a Senate majority and before Scalia's corpse left Texas their leaders were swearing to block ANY nominee from the Dem Prez.
  • There are huge cases (think voting rights and abortion for two) next session.
  • Right now the left/right wings are evenly split after many years of a 4/5 favoring conservatives.
  • A divided court decision in effect upholds lower federal court rulings, which lean left.
  • The Senate must approve any nominee but is not required to hear or vote on any.
  • 24 Republican Senate seats are up for reelection in November and no one can be sure how voters will treat obstructionist, duty-shirking sitting Senators.

Call in or leave me to go on by myself.
