    but honestly, so what?  The Robert court has been piecemeal, a chip at a time, accomplishing what the right wing wants done, in spite of the fact that the conservatives lost the last two presidential elections.  Make no mistake.  This is a coup.  A back door, piece at a time coup, but a coup nonetheless.

      A number of justices are getting older (or both older and forgetful like the delightful Antonin Scalia, accidental benefactor of gay marriage, heh heh) and the President appoints.

      It's also why this year's Senate races are critical and I have been contributing to Senatorial candidates. It's also why Leahy has to be forced to let go of the "gentlemanly" blue slipping blocking of Obama nominees by Republicans.

      President nominates, Senate confirms.
