Political Cartoon of the Week, April 4-10

This week’s best political cartoon comes from Chan Lowe (South Florida Sun-Sentinel).

After a week of buzz and chatter about the prospect of the 89-year-old Liberal Justice John Paul Stevens retiring from the U.S. Supreme Court, Stevens finally made it official on Friday:

My dear Mr. President:

Having concluded that it would be in the best interests of the Court to have my successor appointed and confirmed well in advance of the commencement of the Court’s next term, I shall retire from regular active service as an Associate Justice, under the provisions of 28 U.S.C. 371 (b), effective the next day after the Court rises for the summer recess this year.

Most respectfully yours,

John Paul Stevens

President Obama thus has to appoint his replacement, and regardless of whom he ends up with, conservative (and liberal?) opponents are bound to dig up (or make up) something to spur a media controversy. A reverse racist? An Anti-American? Who knows, but what we do know is that Senate Republicans have already voiced their willingness to filibuster Obama’s choice. Stay tuned!
