It's Recess-time Somewhere

All you really need to know about Harriet Miers, the newest nominee for Supreme Court Justice, is that she thinks George Bush is brilliant.

In the White House that hero worshipped the president, Miers was
distinguished by the intensity of her zeal: She once told me that the
president was the most brilliant man she had ever met. She served
Bush well, but she is not the person to lead the court in new
directions - or to stand up under the criticism that a conservative
justice must expect.

Holy crap! What is it about Chimpy that she sees as brilliant? I'm baffled.

Is it his stellar performance in lying us into a war and costing us almost 2000 lives and 200 billion dollars?

Is it his exquisite handling of the economy and running up unprecedented deficits?

Is it his clever handling of terrorism, and the nurturing of an environment that makes us less safe than we were before 9/11?

Or is it his adept handling of hurricane Katrina where he stayed on vacation, played the gee-tar and ate cake for five days after the storm hit?

It's really hard to just pick one act of brilliance as the most luminous. There are so, so very many to chose from. But maybe, if Ms. Miers has some time, she can make a list and pick one. That is if she's not too busy studying constitutional law. From what I hear, it's good to have some background in constitutional law and the those precedent thingies when you are a Supreme Court Justice, so she better get on it. Miers has no experience with either being a judge or working with constitutional law.

Strap yourselves in and hold on to the handrails.

    you know, the more I read about Bush and his ilk, the more I think they care about one thing only. Money and a Republican majority.

    They could care less about gay marriage, abortions, crime etc. They just whore themselves out to whatever side of an issue will provide them with more money.

    And it seems like the two things Miers can be couted on for, are stealing from the poor and giving to the rich, and loyalty to the Right.

    He is brilliant! Didn't you see the first debate with Kerry? The stammering, the incoherent sentences, the deer-in-headlights stare? Brilliant, I tell you!

    And W is without a doubt the bestest stupid President ever. Best at falling off of stuff, too. Eat your heart out Gerald Ford!

    Dumb enough to bamboozle the entire US into installing him illegally into the Presidency, I guess...he is the bestest stupidest president ever!

    Bush is borderline retarded. There's no doubt about that. But Miers? I'll take her.

    I could say that just because she has no experience on the bench is no reason not to be on the Supreme Court--after all, Earl Warren had never been a judge and he presided over one of the finest Court's this country has ever had.

    But that's not it. Miers, like Thomas, will probably be an empty chair and another Republican embarrassment to the fine institutions that make our great government.

    On the other hand, she isn't one of the other psycopathic, bible thumping trolls who Bush could have appointed.

    You're not happy about her? Well, that deal was done on November 2, 2004. After that day, it wasn't a question of bad, it was only a question of how bad.

    There isn't a single thing Democrats can do about it. In my view, bitching about her is like bitching about dying from a heart attack rather than bone cancer.

    Take the heart attack. You gotta die from something.
