Separated at Birth?


Harriet Miers, Supreme Court Justice nomineeEmperor Palpatine, Lord of the Sith


     Seriously, though, I know nothing about this woman. If her background is interesting enough, I might post on it this week.

Nah, Emperor Palpatine is Zell Miller's doppelganger.

In that photo, Miers looks more like the Goth Granny.

I knew she reminded me of someone.

So far as I can tell, she seems like a really crappy choice. I hope I'm wrong.

ORF said...

HA! Her background is nonexistent. That is why you know nothing about this woman.

I don't think that lack of judicial experience is a big deal since many previous SCOTUS judges had no previous judicial experience, but after all the MIke Brown cronyism charges, which were deserved, you'd think he'd pick someone that would not give off any semblance of cronyism.

Now see, I'll criticize Bush plenty when I think he deserves it.

ORF said...

Yeah Ben, a WHOLE PARAGRAPH!!! That's plenty ;)

Madicare drug crap, inability to convince people to fix SS, inability to rein in congressional spending, bad communication. The Republicans are probably going to lose congress the next election, and it's their own fault, because the Democrats certainly haven't done much to deserve to win it themselves. More than ever we have a choice between two bad parties. But I think Guiliani might be our next President.

Oh yeah, and his unwillingness to do anything about illegal immigration. He says it's bad as a sop to people who agree, but then he doesn't do anything at all about it, except come up with ways to make them legal.

EVen with all that, I'd take him over Kerry any day.

Bush does seem to have an affinity for wrinkly types. I expect Hans Moleman to be nominated for something real soon.

Looks like the mascara PAC has got George by the balls or something.
