Quote of the Week
"I’m not really certain how intellectually strong she would be, she has not been very strong on the second circuit."
-- Karl Rove, the man who gave us short-lived Supreme Court nominee/wide-eyed sycophant Harriet Miers and who comes from the party of Sarah Palin and George W. Bush, on Sonia Sotomayor
Seriously, I expected some pretty crazy crap to come out of the Republicans' mouths in a desperate attempt to make Sotomayor look unpalatable, but you're kidding me, right? They're going to dare to bring up the "I" word? These opportunists who've sucked up to the most uneducated, most fearful of those who put logic and reason above blind faith, most likely to believe that evolution and global warming aren't real and that the world is 6,000 years old and Jesus will protect his children living on it from destroying themselves and their home through an endless cycle of waste and pollution -- these people are suddenly bitching about the need for a strong intellect?
Wow -- just wow. The lack of shame is fucking staggering.
