Newly retired Sandra Day O’Connor voiced what many of us have been thinking recently — the actions of the Bush administration and our weak-kneed buddies in Congress are moving in the direction of yes, she actually said this word, “dictatorship.” Referring to the rhetorical attacks on an independent judiciary by such ethically-challenged congressmen as Tom DeLay and John Cornyn, she laid it out but was anyone listening? Not in any major media outlets. Slate’s Jack Shafer refers to the bloggers as”setting themselves on fire” over the speech but notes the absence of any coverage by the mainstream media. Nina Tottenberg covered the speech for NPR and that’s all we get.
