It's Fuck You Friday

To the people who didn't vote in the presidential election last year: fuck you.

The announcement today of Justice O'Connors retirement is a disaster, a fucking disaster. Bush will have not one but two Supreme Court nominations to make, and O'Connor has long been the swing vote on the court that has protected Roe v. Wade and has acted as a buffer to the extremism of the hard right conservative justices.

You lazy fucking assholes who didn't bother to vote, get ready for a Supreme Court filled with Scalia-type crackpots who will rule against your rights. Look for bible-thumping "morality" to become the law of the land. Enjoy your new Southern Baptist overlords, because they'll have a tremendous influence in your lives and how you're allowed to live them.

This is a fight that we can't win. The Republicans will do what they always do - change the rules to suit their needs - and Frist will push the nuclear button for this nomination. We're fucked.
