Chief Justice Rehnquist is Cancerous
Mr. Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist, 80, spent the weekend in Bethesda Naval Hospital, Maryland, treated for thyroid cancer. He'll be back on the Court next month, we're told.
For what this means, read his dissent in the 1972 Supreme Court case, Roe v. Wade. JF Kerry could replace the man with another Stephen Breyer.
The stakes are high. Kerry can tell voters that Bush would nominate people who would take away the Constitutional right -- which he, in the first debate, equated with the First Amendment -- to abort. Bush, on the other hand, can invoke the radical agenda of abortion at all times and for whatever reasons. On demand. Partial birth. Abortion mills. There are a lot of almost unthinkable but very real images which he can use.
If anything, this will help the President, but he should use it only if Kerry tries it first.
