The Chief Justice is Dead, Long Live the Chief Justice

Well to anyone wondering why Bush didn't pick Posner for the last open Supreme Court slot, you know now. He must have been saving him for the top slot. (Or he better have been.)

Before we continue, a quick RIP to Renquest.

We need someone with some smarts and some chutzpah. John Roberts has at bit of the former but clearly not the latter. Antonin Scalia shows that he's got balls now and then, but it's easy to do that once you've got a seat on the supreme bench.

Posner has proposed selling babies. That's smart, and that takes balls. (Actually the term "selling babies" ain't too accurate and is usually used to detract, but it's fun to say and if you do your homework, you'll find Posner's right.) Let's push Posner ahead!
