Sandra Day OConnor

Did anyone else notice a sense of irony about Sandra Day OConnor's role as grand marshall of the Tournament of Roses and the Rose Bowl Game?

She'd always been known as a "swing-vote" on the court and with that famous distinction she's invited to the Rose Bowl game to flip the coin. I wonder how many times she used the same deciding technique while on the bench.

Perhaps an activist judge would've merely told us how the coin was going to land despite how it actually landed. Texas won the toss of the coin and the game which can obviously be blamed on the Bush administration.

I was rooting for USC. Just another reason to hate Bush.

I have no television and thus I can't watch the games which makes me kind of sad because I actually do enjoy the occasional football game.

That post made me laugh also. It is a clear way of explaining what activist judges do, however.
