You're going to have to drop that little line of yours, since it's neither true nor funny. I do greatly enjoy jokes at my own expense, as the many glue-sniffing references will attest, but still...

As for Stevens vs. Nixon vs. Scalia et al., I'd be glad to look over their respective records to see who's the least bit conservative of the whole bunch. I still say Stevens was consistently the most concerned with government overreach, particularly with regards to police powers. This used to be an area of concern for "conservatives"... not any more, from the looks of it.

Kelo, though, is a painful blot on his record, as Colin Powell would say.

Scalia isn't necessarily a fan of police powers. Can't remember the case, but a few years ago po-po used heat detectors to find a guy who was growing pot in the basement and Scalia wrote a scathing opinion saying it was an unreasonable search.

It is, but "conservative" is more than a single issue. A "conservative" Justice leans toward original intent while a "liberal" Justice tends to look more at the social ramifications of their decision than the law.
We rate the Justices by who they agree with and the content of their opinions, and Stevens is by far the most liberal Justice on the bench by that standard.

No, you're wrong. Ric says so. Nixon was a lib, Stevens is a conservative, up is down, God is dead, and only HE knows the truth behind the giant International Jewish conspiracy...whooopee!

Reminds me of the line from the movie "Seven", when Pitt's character asks the psycho if he KNOWS he's insane, while "sitting around, reading Guns & Ammo, masturbating in his own feces" if he ever stops and realizes how amazingly crazy he really effing is.

I imagine it's possible for some people to be really, really wrong but somehow delude themselves into thinking that everyone else (who are actually correct) are the one's who are wrong.

You could make a good case for that. Appeasing Red China, OSHA, the Clean Air and Water Act, wage and price controls, attempting national health care, getting out of Nam (a process completed by Ford).

Nixon's domestic policy was politically neutral. He had some very liberal policies, brought about more by pragmatism than any other factor, and he also had some very conservative policies, and they cancelled each other out.

Excepting the Chinese resumption of relations, his Foreign policy was almost EXTREME far-right. Look at how he dealt with Israel, or Chile....

Anyway, neutral plus very far right nets to pretty far to the right of the middle in at least my book, but, eh, what do I know?
