I thought the HillBuzz suggestion of Princess Kennedy was a decent split of the territory between stupid and absurd.
Pat in Shreveport sees my absurd, and raises me a Nobel Prize and an Oscar: Al Gore for SCOTUS.
Pat quotes the Catholic weekly America:
there is a long tradition of having those with legislative or executive experience on the Court, a tradition that has fallen by the wayside as Presidents have sought nominees with little or no paper trail. Earl Warren was a lawyer, and had served as attorney general of California, but it was his stature as a three-term Governor who was nominated by both parties for the job that earned him the nod for the Court in 1953.It makes great sense in Hopey-change America. We have a POTUS who's got more best-sellers under his belt than substantive legislation.
Where Pat's post only gets a B+ instead of the A grade is that she neglected to nominate RSM instead. Like Gore, Stacy hasn't a law degree. Unlike the Global Grilling Gadfly, Stacy's opinions can be guaranteed in advance not to render the reader comatose.
