Well, the SCOTUS rumors have already started to fly, and a lot of them are kind of silly. But this one here from Sen. Orrin Hatch is one that's so serious and so not-any-kind-of-conservative-shit-stirring that I hesitate to even call it a rumor at all…
Sen. Orrin Hatch says he's heard Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's name mentioned in connection with the Supreme Court vacancy brought about by the retirement of Justice John Paul Stevens.
Hatch didn't elaborate in an interview Monday. Appearing with Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy on NBC's "Today" show, the Utah Republican said only, "I heard Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's name today and that would be an interesting person in the mix."
Hillary Clinton? Hmmmm… That would be an interesting person in the mix. Do you know whose I heard today? William Ayers. (Just now, when I was reading aloud as I typed.) I think that would be an interesting person in the mix.
Oh, and Michael Moore. That would also be an interesting person in the mix.
What about that fat transvestite from all those John Waters movies? Is she still alive? Who cares, doesn't matter. She would be a very interesting person in the mix.
