Phyllis Schlafly has dedicated her most recent column to making the rather odd demand that the next Supreme Court nominee must be a military veteran and that vets in the Senate must pressure him to make such a nomination, because his "disdain for the military is no secret": For as long as we can remember, the U.S. Supreme Court has included at least one military veteran. Recent examples include Republican-appointed Chief Justice William Rehnquist, who died in 2005, and Justice John Paul Stevens, who is expected to resign this year. The Democrats have not placed a veteran on... MORE >

FRC has sent a letter to Senators warning them that the organization will be scoring the vote on David Hamilton's nomination to the 7th Circuit. Bill Donohue says the "War on Christmas" has already begun: "The declared enemy of these cultural fascists is religious speech, and they will stop at nothing to censor it."

Others have already pointed out that the whole Glenn Beck/Fox News/right-wing crusade against President Obama's "czars" is totally bogus.

From the Washington Times: Emboldened by the ouster of presidential adviser Van Jones, conservative and business groups are launching fresh challenges aimed at derailing President Obama's nominees.

Here's a quick collection of early right-wing reactions to the news that Justice David Souter will be retiring from the Supreme Court at the end of this term - it will continue to be updated as new statements are released:Wendy Long (Judicial Confirmation Network):1.
