Sandra Day O'Connor Blasts Republican Dictatorship

Forgive the intrusion of US politics, but I just can't resist blogging on this. Recently retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor is apparently having a serious case of buyer's remorse. In this NPR story, she attacks the Bush Administration's politicization of the court system (inconveniently forgetting that her vote put him there). She even used the word "dictatorship" to describe the direction of the country (but what else can you say about a nation where 40% of the people think it is great that Bush spies on them?).

Morning Edition, March 10, 2006 · Retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor showed Thursday that she's not absent from judicial issues. During a speech in Washington, she said Republican leaders' attacks on the courts threaten the constitutional freedoms of Americans.
