I think it is time to replace the Supreme Court with a computer. It wouldn't even have to be a supercomputer -- maybe an Atari 400 or a Commodore PET. After all, the only job of a Supreme Court justice is to determine whether a law is constitutional. Does this law match the Constitution? Computers are great at finding matches, but somehow, that's too complex a problem for liberals. Obama's obamination for the Supreme Court is the poster child for what a judge should NOT be. Judge Sonya Sotomayor believes it is appropriate for a judge to consider her “experiences as women and people of color” in their decision making, which she believes should “affect our decisions.” That attitude has resulted in 60% of her rulings being overturned. And, once again, Obama wants her confirmed NOW. No time for deliberation. I'm for the Atari. I have been wondering how it makes sense for a car company to shut down dealerships that are selling its product. Now I know. Sense had nothing to do with it. This is raw, Chicago-style, mob politics. Is anyone going to call Obama on it? Doubtful. For the first time in five weeks, I am castless. They removed the cast Tuesday and now I have to wear this huge velcro boot for three weeks. I now know why you don't see Sasquatches driving Corvettes. The accelerator and the brake pedal are too close for comfort. If I plow through a crowd, I hope they blame the boot and not my age. My age. I'm spending my last weeks in the 50s. I turn 60 in mid-June. How did this happen???
