"Ms. Miers' views will be important for the Senate
-- Senator Sellout, also known as
Pat Rubber-stamp Leahy, Link
Pat, like with Roberts, why bother with the dog-and-pony hearings?
You're going to confirm any fascist Bush sends you, so why waste the money?
Why showboat that, "Tough questions must be answered!" when
know you're going to vote for this woman, Bush's personal AWOL lawyer.
Harriet: No Footprints
Here we go again. Another pick for the Supreme Court
without judicial experience.
And that will make it hard to assess what sort of Justice
Harriet Miers, Bush's lawyer,
will be if the Senate confirms her. In announcing
his selection of Miers, Bush said,
"I believe that senators of both parties will find that
Harriet Miers's talent, experience
and judicial philosophy make her a superb choice."
But what precisely is her "judicial philosophy"? And
how can it be discerned?
Miers has never been a judge (which should not be a disqualification).
She spent most of her career as a corporate lawyer (Bush
was once a client) before
joining the Bush Administration as staff secretary. Does
she qualify as a crony?
In private practice, she headed one of Texas' largest
law firms, and as a trial litigator
she represented Microsoft and Disney. She also racked
up a series of firsts: first woman
to lead a major law firm in the Lone Star State, first
woman to become president of the
Dallas Bar Association, first woman to become president
of the state bar.
Where is the outrage?
This is f-ing 2005, and Bush found someone
who could break the gender ceiling in Texas?
That's what makes her qualified to rule all of us for the next 35 years?
Because she made a name for herself in woman-hating, backwards Texas?
Would the first Saudi female driver also qualify?
Bush is stacking the court with "Brownies" who
owe him - BIG TIME - because
they're not qualified to be where they are without their undying loyalty to
Jesus, when will people accept that facts are facts?
Bush has the same depraved f-ing indifference for the United States Constitution
as he has for
the black Katrina victims who can't get any help from his appointed crony clown
Indicted for Second Time
Former big shot charged with money laundering
A Texas grand jury on Monday indicted Tom DeLay on
a new charge of money laundering.
A different grand jury whose six-month term ended last
week indicted him on a conspiracy charge,
forcing the nasty-ass Bug Man to temporarily step down
as House majority leader.
Both indictments accuse DeLay and two henchmen of conspiring
to get around a state ban on
corporate campaign contributions by funneling the money
through the the RNC in Washington.
So why don't they indict Ken Mehlman, too? DeLay
writes Mehlman a six-figure check,
Mehlman writes Delay a six-figure check for the same
amount in return, ...but Mehlman goes free?

"A new theory about Fitzgerald's aim has emerged in
recent weeks," continued the Post,
"from two lawyers who have had extensive conversations
with the prosecutor while representing
witnesses in the case. They surmise that Fitzgerald is
considering whether he can bring charges
of a criminal conspiracy perpetrated by a group of senior
Bush administration officials. Under this
legal tactic, Fitzgerald would attempt to establish that
at least two or more officials agreed to take
affirmative steps to discredit and retaliate against
(former Ambassador Joseph) Wilson and leak
sensitive government information about his wife."
One Plame-oriented bombshell exploded on Sunday across
the desk of the "This Whore," when host
George Judas Maximus Stephanopoulos said, "I wonder,
George Will, do you think it's a manageable
one for the White House especially if we don't know whether
Fitzgerald is going to write a report or
have indictments, but if he is able to show, as a source
close to this told me this week, that Bush and
Cheney were actually involved in some of these discussions."
I wonder, George Will, what your Pucker Factor was when
Judas mentioned having a source that says
Bush & Dick were involved in the conspiracy. Put
it at an eight, and have that seat cushion repaired.
This is why Bush is stacking the Whore Court with loyalists.
He gives them a lifetime appointment of status and wealth - and they
help him when he needs a favor.

House of Shame
by Jonathan Alter
A decade ago, I paid a call on Tom DeLay in his office.
I had heard that after the GOP took
control of the House that year, DeLay had begun keeping
a little black book with the names of
Washington lobbyists who wanted to come see him. If the
lobbyists were not Republicans and
contributors to his power base, they didn't get into "the
DeLay not only confirmed the story, he showed me the
book. His time was limited, DeLay explained
with a genial smile. Why should he open his door to people
who were not on the team? Thus began
what historians will regard as the single most corrupt
decade in the long and colorful history of the House."
Subject: Miss Manners- fuhgetaboutit
You're right. There's such a thing
as "situational infighting."
I mean when the time comes to really rip a new one for
some greedy, arrogant
Republican bastard who lies all the time, and who acts

That means gives a visceral negative reaction!
That means people want to vomit!
That means the bastard you are targeting starts to
bleed from the eyes!
I think you can forgive yourself for calling some macho
asshole a "pussy"
because it's demeaning to the asshole, not demeaning
to the ladies.
It's not negative in the usual sense of a casual
insult to a stranger.
Why don't you just explain all that on the seen-as-radical

"In the White House that hero worshipped the president,
was distinguished by the intensity of her zeal: She once

brilliant man she

Then we have the Democrats - the Ultimate Weenies -

The Girl Next
by Bruce Reed
So far as we know, Joe Allbaugh didn't have any college
roommates who were women.
So Bush picked Miers '67. Even if she turns
out to be qualified, the Miers nomination
starts out looking like another inside deal from an administration
that has made far too many.
The right wing has only itself to blame for Bush's choice.
For the last six months, they have
waged a bitter war against Bush's first White House counsel,
Alberto Gonzales, on the grounds
that Gonzales was "Spanish for Souter." Gonzales
may be a hack with suspect conservative
credentials, but at least he would have been an inspiring
and historic hack.
Now the right is stuck with Miers, who may not even be
'SMU for Gonzales.'"
