Sound Destruction: THE ROVE-ING AYE

Tuesday, July 19, 2005


Proof that Bush is looking for a distraction from the Rove scandal?

Bush nominates conservative and non-female federal appeals court judge John G. Roberts Jr. whose nomination could trigger a tumultuous battle over the direction of the nation's highest court, senior administration officials said.

Oh, and he chose to do it in a prime-time press conference.

Wonder how the honorable judge Roberts feels about becoming the latest Bush pawn.

Yeah, Sar, I noticed that. I guess with a lifetime appointment you don't mind being a pawn. Ask Justice Thomas.

First using national security for political gain, now the Supreme Court (to an honest extent, somewhat)...tsk tsk.

Thanks for the props about my post title, Doug, I kinda surprised myself with it.

CW - tsk tsk and for shame. To exploit a process that is so seldom and ceremonious is indeed shameful.

Does Rove have to coach Bush on how to handle the Rove scandal?

Ahh, pessimists unite!

BushCo is an amazing machine! You have to admire it's effectiveness at disarming IEDs. The list of distractions and the impeccable timing of them is something to admire. Slick Willy ain't got nothin' on them!

Gabe - I don't think the puppet is capable of turning against the hand that feeds him.

Nedhead - sickening isn't it?

Araider & Doug - perhaps you mean goaltending?
