NOW President Kim Gandy puts out a press release:
“Make no mistake. The passing of Chief Justice William Rehnquist creates a crisis unlike any in my 30-plus years in the women’s movement. While we send condolences to Justice Rehnquist’s family, this is a crisis for our movement and we must act now.
“This second vacancy creates double jeopardy for women. We are now in the fight of our lives, but it’s a fight we’ve won before and we will win again. Senators must oppose every nominee who opposes our rights, for as long as it takes – and we must demand no less.”
So, I’m guessing that I’m not on their short list of acceptable candidates. And yet, I’ll bet I can invent emanations and penumbras with the best of them.
