For Those Of You Who Refuse To Vote For Obama (Or Hillary) In November

Just a little helpful reminder:

Republican presidential candidate John McCain said on Tuesday he would appoint judges in the mold of conservatives John Roberts, Samuel Alito and former Chief Justice William Rehnquist if he were elected in November.

In an excerpt from a speech McCain was to give in Winston-Salem on Tuesday, the Arizona senator said he would “look for accomplished men and women with a proven record of excellence in the law, and a proven commitment to judicial restraint.”

“I will look for people in the cast of John Roberts, Samuel Alito, and my friend the late William Rehnquist — jurists of the highest caliber who know their own minds, and know the law, and know the difference,” McCain said.

John Paul Stevens would be 92 at the end of President McCain’s first term, and Ruth Bader Ginsberg would be 79.  So if you like the idea of having wingnuts solidly in control of the Supreme Court for the next 20-30 years, then by all means, stay home or vote for McCain on Election Day.
