Letter to the editor:

Here’s a way to make the GOP go crazy

The U.S. Constitution lists no qualifications for service as a Supreme Court justice. None. No minimum age. No minimum IQ. No legal experience or training. Not even a high school diploma. Absolutely anyone can serve.

Wouldn’t it be absolutely wild if President Barack Obama were to nominate Bill Clinton? Could you imagine the uproar, the drama, the theater? Heck, it’d take everyone’s mind off the economy.

Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity would be dumbstruck by the sheer chutzpah. Mark Levin and Michael Savage would instantly succumb to apoplectic shock, their blood pressure skyrocketing to untold heights. What great fun to be had.

And he would be a great justice.

Oh well, I can dream, can’t I?
