This is a really entertaining day. I told you earlier about my conversation with a good friend who's apoplectic about the Miers nomination. As Dweezil notes in a comment to that post, the fascists are going absolutely batshit crazy about it, too. Dweezil and I ask you, if something pisses off that segment of the population so thoroughly, can it possibly be a bad thing?
Seems some of their objections center on the same things as ours; she's never been a judge, she has no record, and she's a Bush crony. Their bigger objection is that she's a woman. If God had meant for women to be Supremes, he'd have given Scalia a pussy.
Roll with it, kids. We can't win the fight. She profiles out as a classic botched Republican nomination. If that profile's wrong, we end up where we'd end up if Bush nominated Leni Reifenstahl, except that we won't have turned some Republican into a fucking martyr and looked like a bunch of fucking moonbats. The time to fight is in about eight or nine months.
Roll with it.
