The Chief Justice been at death’s door, but he made it past the election. It won’t be a surprise if he announces his retirement tomorrow, but damn. Chimpy doesn’t deserve two shots at the Supreme Court. The BradBlog has the goods.
Received this moments ago from our friend Tony Trupiano of The Tony Show who received it himself via Email just moments after going off the air and thus was not able to run it. He tells The BRAD BLOG that he considers his source for this to be “golden”…
Just spoke to a Senate press secretary who said Republicans on the Judiciary Committee let them know that they should be prepared for Rehnquist to make a statement sometime between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. tomorrow morning and not to schedule anything during that time. Please be advised.
