Harriet Miers?

Not exactly a transformative appointment....

Unfortunately, the Lyndon Johnson analogies keep piling up: first it was guns and butter, and now it's appointing his own lawyer---shades of Abe Fortas.

To quote INDCent Bill, "It's just this war and that, that lyin' son-of-a-bitch Johnson."


However, is it just me, or is there a certain familiar something about her appearance......

Well, until your trackbacks come back here is my post on the watering hole

She donated $$$$ to Gore???

Look, even in my Nation-subscribing, soymilk-drinking liberal days, I couldn't bring myself to support Gore. Tammy Bruce is right: Bush has turned into Jimmy Carter ;p

Just remember, Karl Rove imported Pol Pot's re-education camps to Arizona. Harriet's been going there on a regular basis since 1990.

I noticed Der Kommissar gave you a shout-out for the pics, which he described as "incredibly cruel (but hilarious)." Unfortunately, I have a horrible suspicion this isn't the last time I'll be getting a belly laugh out of this nomination...

I know a man who knows her and says she is really, REALLY, sharp. He also said that she would be a damn good pick.

I believe that this guy believes what he is saying, and I generally trust his judgement...

I just wish we could know for sure.

I am still PISSED at Bush for not nominating Janice Rogers Brown....

Here's my post on the subject.

Kinda like the Stranger, she just appears on the horizon one likely day.

Guess we'd better get a move-on and paint the town red. Those guys who tried to kill the last sherrif'll be here sometime after sundown.

Let's see, watering hole in the desert where no trackbacks work. This just ain't my day, is it? Anyway, Pouting Thomases.
My take is people jumped the gun on trying to shoot her down.

A few thoughts on the nomination.

Wow, how nice...a place on the right where everyone's not freeeeaaking out, for a change.

Um, she needs to back off on that eyeliner.
