Justice Stevens is one of the absolute great heroes of American liberalism over the past several decades.The American Prospect's Adam Serwer is giddy over short-list speculation for Obama's SCOTUS nominee.
Having fun speculating with some of the military commissions attorneys on who will replace Stevens. I think it's between Wood and Kagan.At the Washington Post, Ezra Klein snarkily ties Stevens' retirement to Larry Summers' recent grumblings.
Beginning of the week: Larry Summers is unhappy at WH and wants a bigger role. End of week: Stevens retires. COINCIDENCE!?Daily Kos editor Markos Moulitsas retweets a SCOTUS take with a whimsical Rachel Maddow-Scott Brown bent.
Spencer Ackerman is already fed up with the whole speculating-who-next's thing.
Hey, can someone else write a pure-speculation SCOTUS short-list listicle? PRETTY PLEASE???BONUS: It's not SCOTUS-related, but David Corn's stunned reaction to a Fox News editorial decision is Twitter gold.
Fox cuts from Palin to Obama. Please, check thermostat in hell.
