Scalia is dead

Over the weekend, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America, Antonin Scalia, died unexpectedly of natural causes while at a hunting retreat in Texas.

While I cannot celebrate the death of a person, I do eagerly anticipate President Obama's choice of a replacement. Scalia, for all his brilliance, has had a corrosive effect upon American law and society.

It does not surprise me that Republicans in general are calling for President Obama to hold off on appointing a successor to Scalia, but that makes no sense. Obama is still going to be present for the next 335 days; he does not step down until noon on January 20, 2017.

The problem, in my mind, is that the American right wing does not trust this President. They constantly rail against the alleged "damage" he has caused this country; I honestly see no appreciable damage to the Nation from this administration (in stark contrast to the previous administration).

Go ahead, Mr President. Do your job. Oh and Republicans? We would all appreciate it if you would do your jobs as well.
