It's not that I'm not interested in observing Bush's attempt to replace Rove with Roberts in the headlines, but meanwhile... government keeps churning. Congress is strengthening the goddamn Patriot Act
, and we may not have any rights left to quibble over by the time we have yet another white male on the Supreme Court.
I know it seems dull compared to watching volleys in the match over whether Rove or Roberts gets the headlines, but this may well have more serious long-term implications than all the damage both of them can do. Let's make sure the long-term impact of the Patriot Act doesn't get completely buried while today's issues get worked and re-worked in the headlines.
