It's all a plot you know. The Miers nomination, I mean.
It's in the VRWC (Vast Right Wing Conspiracy) Handbook. Chapter 3 ("Stocking Federal Courts With Ultra Right-Wingers), Section C, paragraph 5, sentence 4 to be exact!
The President nominates a candidate who is a complete unknown with no judicial experience, but a distinguished legal career who really is a closet ultra right-wing conservative determined to overturn Roe v Wade and turn the US into a theocracy. This nominee, of course, has had her career carefully shielded from the media so as to look like a complete mismatch for the role of Associate Justice (never mind the fact that there have been 40 other Supreme Court picks with no judicial experience who have served honorably).
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, conservatives and conservative organizations all pretend to be unhappy, nay, outraged over the President's pick. Thus Democrats and liberals in the MSM (ever ready to underestimate Bush), believing they have succeeded in intimidating the President, rush Meirs' nomination process.
Little do they realize that is EXACTLY what all of us ultra right-wing neocon vast right-wing war-mongering chickenhawks want! Democrats have just spelled their own doom (you know... D-O-O-M)!
MUAHAHA... cough, cough, cough, COUGH!
Sorry. Have a little cold.
