She Stole My Heart and My Cat

Yeah, so Harriet Miers, eh? Strange bird, this one. Until now, Bush had stuck to only appointing his unqualified cronies to out of the way posts like head of FEMA and Secretary of State. Now, he wants to put his undereducated, obsequious, chief lotto drawing expert on the Supreme Court. I’m of two minds about it, since you asked. Clearly, she’s unqualified. Southern Methodist University? I’m sure it’s a great school, but come on, even Bush went to Yale and Harvard. She’s never sat on a park bench, let alone a court bench. I think she can find the Supreme Court on a map, but she’s never been in its halls as had our new Chief Justice. She’s a hack. A Bush flunky. That’s bad because in other words, the only reason Bush picked her is because he knows exactly how she’ll vote on everything, which is to say on the side of corporate and government fascism and against the people.

But on the other hand, if the Senate gets bitchy about it and doesn’t approve her, I can see Crybaby Bush saying, “Fine, then. Fuck you, here’s Satan, try him on for size.”

Those on the extreme right are complaining about her, which is a good thing, but I don’t get it. Bush is a religiofascist, so she must be too. They might not have it on paper, but she is. No fear of a Souter here. And that’s what worries me. There are three types of Supreme Court justices. There are those with an ideological axe to grind, (Scalia). There are those who are intelligent, fair, deliberative analysts of the constitution and civil rights, (Souter, Stevens, Ginsburg, Breyer). And there are those who are too stupid and unqualified to do anything but be subservient to the person who appointed them or to their total BFF on the court, (Thomas). I fear that Miers is the latter. And that’s no better than a Priscilla Owen or a Janice Rogers Brown.

Another Thomas

But isn't that exactly what serves this family best? This family and their cronies are simply there to pimp the party, the military and the American people for their own aims. "Religiofascist"? No, he's and his are 'Family First', and I mean his family. Screw everyone else.

True, but he is STILL a religiofascist..Thought I don't understand how he can be so religious and justify all the lying, cheating, shady business deals, self-interest and general dishonesty.
