harriet miers withdraws...

it's about time. now can we maybe get a nominee from, say, i dunno.....at least a top 5 law school? maybe someone who has actually served as a judge? i'm sorry, to not have one or the other will raise eyebrows a bit, to not have either? what a fucking joke.

bring it bush. he placated laura with this lady. this next one is gonna be a man. you think he goes for the minority card in gonzales this time?

now off with you to the HNT below!

15 people who played with me:

I'm sort of disappointed she withdrew. I think it's funny that people say the first woman to become a partner at a major law firm in TEXAS of all places is incompetant. Looking to the past, experience on the bench isn't necessary, and nor is a paper trail from courts dealing with issues completely irrelevant to those that the Supreme Court deals with. And besides, I thought this one may have gone Souter on him (whereas I doubt Roberts will).

Anyways, ya I bet he pulls the minority card this time around.

oh jazz- too bad- why not have a woman - but i'm very bad about things like this- that's why i refreain from voting or anything, because i wil vote for a woman no matter what- even if she completely brainless-

(unfortuately though, when politicians "play" the cards - the people they place are usually more ardently supporters of that politicians issues than anything else-)

ah jazzy, my favorite little liberal. hehe

I agree with the withdrawl, it was a pretty bold step for a president who isn't getting much love lately.

Maybe they should pick me!!!

ah harriet gone - it's either a blessing (yeah!) or a curse (he could get worse...)

Either way i can be happy about it at least for today

and besides, it's not like he's going to appoint a liberal instead. The country voted this moron into office for a second term largely based on "moral values" and they're going to get what they voted for. Sad but true.

oh Jazz. I miss your insight. It just makes you sexier. From past speeches this new lady seems like a screaming liberal, it's odd that her own party has more to gain from her not being appointed than the dems do. Should be interesting to see what sort of spin she puts on her own opinions to twist her way to the bench.

I don't think she was qualified enough.

You passed 20,000 hits! Congrats! And since nobody else spoke up, I'm pretty sure it was me who was #20,000.

The withdrawal method never works.

personally, i think she was disqualified b/c her hair couldn't stand up to the scrutiny.

but seriously, let's look closer than what stereotype we think the court is missing; if not, we could get a wolf in sheep's clothing. i'm just saying.

Even more than how ludicrous that thing was, it is simply insulting to the american people. Like saying he can do anything he wants, and give his friends anything at all, without even trying to hide his nefarious misuse of power.

With a comment like that, you must be a grad of a top 5 law school. You need a job, Bush could choose another woman ... why not Jazz for Associate Justice?

I totally think he picked her because he (more likely his team) KNEW she would fail and now they can say, "See, we tried a moderate, and we tried a female. It just didn't work, so now we have to go with someone uber-conservative or it'll never get through." Blah.

I think it would be stupid to go for Gonazles because they made such a big deal about White House council privacy with Miers, but I guess that wasn't REALLY the issue so maybe not. He may go with Pricilla Owens or Janice Brown. Ugg.

*waves goodbye to Roe v. Wade and reproductive rights*

A part of me wishes she had stayed b/c she was so devicive in the Republican party and I like to see them fighting with one another. And Concerned Women for America and James Dobsen were against her.
