My Oh My, Miss Miers


Bush Names Harriet Miers to Supreme Court
White House Counsel Would Replace Retiring Sandra Day O’Connor

Harriet Miers met George W. back in 1980, around the same time Karl Rove met Bob Novak.

Cue Friends theme song.

” But … I’ll be there for you
When the rain starts to pour
I’ll be there for you
Like I’ve been there before
I’ll be there for you
’cause you’re there for me too.”

Miss Miers has never worked as a judge. Ah, have judged not? Now ye be judged!

Will she do a ‘heck of a job’?

Seriously, will Harriet Miers be a good judge?

According to an article in Salon Magazine, October 3, 2005, Miers has called President Bush “the most brilliant man I have ever met.” link

UH…so far NO!

But I am going to have an open mind. I am. What’s the worse that could happen?

“There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once — shame on — shame on you. You fool me, you can’t get fooled again.”
George W. Bush, Sep. 17, 2002

    “How Bush Picks Judges” (or, “Affirmative Action for the Woefully Inadequate”):

    Ever seen an episode of “Matlock”? Yes? Here’s your robe. Your head and arms go through the holes. Not all the same hole, no.
    Here’s your gavel…. Actually, you’re supposed to hold it by the skinny part.
    No, we’re not supposed to kill retards and children anymore. Yes,that is a shame.
    That? It’s the Constitution. You don’t haveto worry about that. Not the boat. Yes, I have seen it. It’s very big. Yes, way bigger than this room. Maybe you can take a trip to Boston and see it. Well, since you”re a Supreme Court Justice, I imagine they probably would let you ring the bell. There are a lot of perks to the job.
    OK, Mr. Justice, it’s time to take the bench. Well, it’s not actually a bench. And, no, you’re not allowed to actually take it. It’s a figure of speech.
    Just try to stay awake during the arguments. Well, I guess you could say it’s like “Judge Judy.” Yes, Mr. Justice, she is quite a pistol.
    Don’t worry about the decisions. They will be provided to you by Mr. Rove.
