5. Um, there is no promise of any opening on the court
(on the radical con side) since butch put fairly young guys on. There will be four radical clerics on there, with the only immediate option being to increase the number of associate justices-at one time there were twelve.
Thomas is an absolute joke, however, even though he is a dumbass, his power is pretty heavy.
