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.

One day I will reach saturation point and cease to be amazed at the sheer gall they have in some of their positions.

Unfortunately, I'm not there yet. Sheer hypocrisy.

I waterboarding can change an individual's point of view. Why not experiment of a few high ranking Republicans?

Holy crap- My typing and proofing abilities have gone completely South.

The word "believe" should go in between "I" and "waterboarding".

I find myself muttering "please, PLEASE keep talking" when I see quotes like this from the neo-cons. The more they marginalize themselves, the smaller their base of support gets. I'm finding the spectacle quite enjoyable, in fact.

Why are you so surprised to see "Consultant whores" speaking to the choir on FOX with inane logic and hypocrisy (for a fee)?

I susbstituted 'lazy' for 'crazy' in reading Chez's post. But you can't tell me that the shoe don't fit - because while crazy is the name of the neo-con game, Rove et al must be certifiably lazy to use that chestnut as well.
