Regardless of your opinions about Laura Ingraham, she was one of Clarence Thomas's law clerks. That means either he is considering retiring, or he informed Ingraham of another vacancy soon (perhaps Anthony Kennedy).

If Gorsuch is confirmed and Trump gets to replace Thomas and Kennedy in his first term, the Supreme Court will be majority Conservative for a few decades or so.

Democrats should not blow their capital fighting Gorsuch.

Nor Thomas (a devout Conservative), or Kennedy (who would likely be replaced by a moderate anyway).

Let's hope it is.

She's one of the worst justices ever.

That would be GREAT!

No Phonycons appointed to SCOTUS.....remember the "gift" that we got from one of Bush's appointments.

Kennedy's name has been making the rounds of all the right-wing law blogs.

Ginsberg is reported to have one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel.

It would be nice to get another this year and then 2018.

If there is one about to depart, I hope it isn't Ginsburg.
