    ...except that it's totally incompatible with Dem senators who are already indicating they'll vote yes on Miers.

    Couldn't agree with you more that Bush and his nominee, given the utter stench of corruption around his whole administration and party, should be rejected by every Dem in the Senate. And look, there's some pigs flying outside my window!

    •  She's a decoy (none)
      Bush is putting her up knowing that the rabid right will shoot her down -- and THEN he'll reveal his REAL nominee:  

      Alberto Gonzales.

      You heard it from me first.

      •  Possible (none)
        but I doubt it.  I think Miers is perfect for their purposes.  She's a woman, which in and of itself guts concerted Democratic opposition if her name isn't Kirkpatrick, Schlafly, or Coulter.  She's not a known factor, and she's got some good personal relationships with Senate Dems like Reid and Schumer.

        But, like EVERY OTHER GODDAMNED POLITICAL APPOINTEE IN BUSH'S FIVE-YEAR TENURE, she's a Judas.  She's as rabid and sickeningly conservative as any of them.  She will toxify this court with her right-wing hate and intolerance(wrapped in Southern sweet-talk, a la Libby Dole) for generations.

        Thanks, Dems, for not fighting.  If you'll allow Bush to name his legal nanny to the Court with barely a whimper, then fuck your spineless goddamned excuse for a party.  I'm gone.

        •  Right on Man!!! (none)
          I couldn't agree more.  If we allow the balance of the Supreme Court to be thrown into a rightwing, corporatist, evangelical wingnut majority for the next 30 years, then I will be right behind you in the line out of this gutless Democratic party.  What good is it if it can't use what tools it does have- THE FILIBUSTER - to guarantee that we don't get a stealth Bush evanglical corporatist wingnut appointed to the highest Court in the land!!

          Democratic leaders, listen hard and long-if you cave in on this without finding out exactly how this woman believes on the important social and economic issues of our day-like you caved in to the stealth corporatist "original intent" candidate poster boy-Roberts-I swear, I will bolt the Democratic Party for the Greens or Socialists faster than you can say "damned chicken-shit gutless cowards.!!!"
