It's not too soon for the Democrats to prepare for the next few vacancies on the Supreme Court. A simple majority is now all that's needed for confirmation. No longer will judges try to appear to be centrists or unbiased. The more radical they are, the better chance of being confirmed. It's not a problem ... it's an opportunity.
What we need are some judges, who (like Stephen Colbert did before he blew his cover) pretend to be conservative, when in fact they are quite liberal. Someone like that could be confirmed and then, once on the bench, could show his true colors.
This process could take years, of course, so here's a quicker way.
Create fictitious judges with fictitious biographies as ultra-conservatives. When the time comes, hold auditions and hire an unknown actor to portray to role for the Senate confirmation and subsequent appointment. Unknown liberal actors, eager for the ultimate in job security, will be as common as popcorn on a theater floor. I might even audition myself. I'll wear a t-shirt that says "Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts." Heck, I could make enough money selling T-shirts that I could retire again -- and the vacancy would be filled by my understudy.
