There is little that can be done to stop the establishment of a conservative Supreme Court. But actually I think that's a good thing in the long run. Just as the Bush administration has turned out to be the disaster we predicted, so would a conservative Supreme Court. If abortion rights (for example) become unbearably restricted, the political environment will reflect that in a backlash against the whole conservative ideology. Sometimes we have to experience a little adversity in order to appreciate the freedoms we have.
