Cartoon #196: Rehnquist
On the heels of the announced resignation of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day OConnor, and amid rampant rumors that Supreme Chief Justice William Rehnquists resignation from the high court was imminent, Rehnquist actually did issue a statement on Bastille Day, 2005.
What he said, despite his apparently agressive thyroid cancer, was that he was not going anywhere. Rehnquists press release reminded us of the famous line from Monty Python and the Holy Grail: Im not dead yet! It also reiminded us of the old schtick for removing someone from the stage - the hook.
