ON JUDGE DIANE WOOD is that, on the basis of the decision discussed here, not only is she absolutely unsuited for the Supreme Court, she should be impeached and removed from the bench instanter.
It needs to be made crystal clear to all in the Senate that we will not stand for a statist replacement for Justice Stevens. Any Senator who fails to apprehend and internalize this will not only be defeated at the ballot box, he will be subject to whatever other methods available to the people exist to remove him or her from office. Nor should a replacement be approved in advance of the 2010 election. Attempts to ram one through on any basis should be met with a full-court press of resistance.
This is an absolute. Binary. Black-and-white. No more statists on the Supreme Court. Ever.
