<span style="text-decoration:line-through;">Conservative &hellip; no, that's not right &hellip;
<span style="text-decoration:line-through;">Moderate &hellip; hmmm, doesn't really work &hellip;
<span style="text-decoration:line-through;">Centrist &hellip; not quite right, either &hellip;
<span style="text-decoration:line-through;">Liberal &hellip; nope &hellip;
<span style="text-decoration:line-through;">Socialist &hellip; hardly! &hellip;That's it! I got the lead-in:

Retired Supreme Court Justice and Reagan appointee Sandra Day O'Connor hammers on the GOP and Tom Delay in particular for their attacks on the Federal Judiciary.

From NPR this morning:

<span style="font-family:serif;">Retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor showed Thursday that she's not absent from judicial issues. During a speech in Washington, she said Republican leaders' attacks on the courts threaten the constitutional freedoms of Americans.Audio is at http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5 255712 (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5255712)

Justice O'Connor closed by saying, essentially, that it's a long, slow slide into dictatorship, but it's best we don't even start.
