Harriet The Judge

The right wing in the US is mighty pissed at George Bush's lattest Supreme Court pick. Are they upset because she has never tried a case before? No. No. Are they upset that she appears to be unqualified? No. Are they upset that this is blatant cronyism? (at least in Canada the boss' employees and friends only go to the Senate, where they can't do any real harm)

They're upset because...well, it's difficult to tell why...the general gist seems to be that she isn't conservative enough.

Tough times for the President...


  • I think the uproard about her not being conservative enough is a rouse. It is a way to make it more difficult for the Democrats to say no.

  • That's the thing though, Democrats were sending a qualified "Yes" message (see Democrat Senate Leader, Harry Reid's official response) before the uproar started, and even some frothy Bush-haters are saying, "We'll see."

    It's wacko.

  • It's blatant cronyism, and it's a (comparatively) unqualified pick.

    That's why I'm upset, anyway.

  • This can't truly have success, I suppose so.
