    •  What advice? (none)
      Have I been giving advice?  No. And, in fact, I'm not sure what we'er arguing about as we both think that the right wing dictated this result.

      So go ahead and do your best to advance the correct notion that GW bowed to the right wing.  Do your best to embarass the President into nominating someone who's not a darling of the right wing.  It's a valuable effort.

      And nothing I'm saying is contrary to that.  My point is simple: I see no need to celebrate that GW bowed to the right wing.  

    •  I'm as joyous as anyone to see Bush get mangled (none)
      by his own pets but there is a downside to the fact that Bush's legacy (whatever remains of it, particularly post-Fitzmas) is now pretty much contingent on the support of the party's nutjob base.  

      I'm optimistic by nature but I'm not sure how much meat is left on the carcass of pointing out that Bush shamelessly panders to the wingnuts (constitutional ban on gay marriage, anyone?).

      If this weakening does drive Bush to take shelter in the arms of the right for the remaining three years of his term then I guess it's possible that the general population will be turned off enough to vote anti-Republican in the next few elections but I've gotta tell you,  I've lost faith that Joe Sixpack is really paying attention anymore.

      I'm not sayin'... I'm just sayin'.
