Kaus for the Court!
My extreme long-shot replacement idea for John Paul Stevens is … Mickey Kaus! In one surprise move, Obama would have saved Barbara Boxer from a dark-horse primary threat and confounded all the partisans lining up for the confirmation battle. Having a blogger on the court would bring some kind of diversity, I suppose, and Kaus’ father was a justice on the California Supreme Court.
The best thing? Freddie might even be called in to testify.
