I wonder if God instructed Dubya to go through with it.
Oh that God... such a joker.
he's a regular cut-up.
Freaks me out that dubbya thinks God talks to him.
Wonder what he's hearing...
on the one hand, she was wholly unqualified and the idea of a stealth candidate for the supreme court is very unsettling
on the other hand, I feel kinda sorry for her and the way she was just raked across the coals. I mean, couldn't people have waited for her to have a hearing and then get voted down on her merits?
In all honesty, I think that she should have refused the nomination.
I don't think there's a lawyer in America who would turn down a nomination to the supreme court, no matter how unqualified they felt they were.
I'm qualified to be on the Supreme Court:
I can read. The constitution is in writing.
Though I think that the "able to read the constitution" part hasn't been enhforced very heavily in the past few decades, though.
"The people" = "the military"
"Public" = "private"
yes, you meet the minimum stated qualifications in the constitution, thankfully those who make the nominations and vote on appointments are more discerning than that
I'm not convinced that they are.
I mean, look at the decisions they make.
