I'm going through reading the analysis of each judge. They're not bad, really.

5. LOL, the author isn't really a Thomas fan.
Must be of the opinion that if you can't say something nice...

2. It's a tie: Souter or Ginsberg.
No surprise there. What did surprise me is that I was 8% Scalia. Shudder.

4. 97% Souter 96% Ginsberg
Probably closer to 100% if Douglas, Brennan or Marshall were still around.

10. I am Justice Samuel Alito.
Kidding!!!

:hide:

My quiz result came back as Justice John Paul Stevens, who I agreed with 72% of the time. Although I was also at 72% with Souter and at 71% with Ginsberg.

Although the quiz is a little dated (it includes Souter and not Sotomayor), it's still very interesting! :hi:

14. Souter: 96% Souter, 96% Ginzberg
So I'm actually retired.

Jeff Toobin, as quoted in Wikipedia:

Toughened, or coarsened, by their worldly lives, the other dissenters could shrug and move on, but Souter couldnt. His whole life was being a judge. He came from a tradition where the independence of the judiciary was the foundation of the rule of law. And Souter believed Bush v. Gore mocked that tradition. His colleagues actions were so transparently, so crudely partisan that Souter thought he might not be able to serve with them anymore. Souter seriously considered resigning. For many months, it was not at all clear whether he would remain as a justice. That the Court met in a city he loathed made the decision even harder. At the urging of a handful of close friends, he decided to stay on, but his attitude toward the Court was never the same. There were times when David Souter thought of Bush v. Gore and wept.

--d!
