    The GOP Liar just lied and said Rogers Brown had a well qualified rating from the ABA. Liar!

    anice Rogers Brown, a nominee to the D.C. Circuit and a sitting Justice on the California Supreme Court, has been given the rating Q/NQ (or Qualified/Not Qualified) by the ABA. (This rating is featured prominently in the Congressional Black Caucus's press release opposing her nomination.) This article explains:

        Brown is the second sitting judge nominated by Bush to an appellate court who has received a partial "not qualified" rating from the American Bar Association.

        The ABA's Standing Committee on the Judiciary does not reveal a precise breakdown of its members' votes. But it did disclose, pursuant to its guidelines, that Brown was rated "qualified" by less than two-thirds of the 15 members, meaning that at least six declared her "not qualified" and none said she was "well qualified."

    I'm not that familiar with Brown's judicial opinions, so I can't say whether the Q/NQ rating would be justified if it was what it purports to be: A non-partisan measure of objective qualifications.

    And when I say Frist I mean Dobson.

    •  What a liar this guy is (none)
      Every single word is a lie about even stupid things.

      Just said a filibuster is one guy talking. Stupid.

        As Mary McCarthy once said of Lillian Hellman, every word he says is a lie, including "and" and "the."

        The only way to combat such pathological lying is to call them on it, repeatedly. And if the press insists on repeating the lies for "balance," the press deserves to be called liars, too.

        Radical disrespect is the only valid response to such a shitstorm of dishonesty.

          ... is a telegenic response to lies.
