    Until they drag his elderly comatose body out of the court on a stretcher. He could give Hugo Black and Rehnquist a run for their money in terms of hanging on.

      He's that much of a douchebag, anyway. Though, Rehnquist stuck around as long as he did because he genuinely loved the job. He was an asshole, to be sure, but the one nice thing I can say about him was that he absolutely adored being Chief Justice.

    •  there are ways to encourage him to retire. (1+ / 0-)

      For example attorneys and liberal Justices speaking in court a voice that is just quiet enough that it requires him to make a little bit of extra effort to hear.

      For example Sotomayor asking him to take long walks with her that stir up the ol' aches & pains.  

      For example lots of sentimental talk behind the scenes about family and grandchildren, as in "you really want to spend more time with them."

      For example, lunches with the right combination of sugars and proteins are always good for causing "post-prandial stupor," the feeling that one really needs to take a long nap after eating.  

      And the best part is, none of this is illegal, even in the slightest.
