Awhile back Rosie O'Donnell was ranting on The View, before she was kicked off, about there being too many Catholics on the Supreme Court. Now that another Catholic has been nominated who is just as liberal as Old Rosie I wonder if she will be upset about another Catholic being put on that Court.

We need all the justices to be catholic, can't wait for the others to retire or die. Thank heavens most of the democratic leadership is Catholic, pelosi, biden, and the cabinet. Catholics rule.
