B Before The Fact --- The Bush Supreme Court --- No Women Need Apply

In a post from September , I made the following observation regarding the sorrow some of the right wingers felt when Antonin Scalia was passed over for John Roberts

"The ascension of Antonin Scalia to Chief Justice, by the way, is not the answer for the movement conservative. It has to be a younger person, not simply because you never know when Scalia will die (what if Hillary is President, then?), but anyone with an adult living memory of World War II or Martin Luther King is simply not, in a pinch, going to prove conservative enough for these people. And, by the way, anyone with an adult living memory of being a woman, or a non-Caucasian, is in a pinch, going to fail the movement conservatives as well."
