We’re Doomed

Via Matthew Yglesias, we find this deeply disturbing post from Seb’s best bud David Frum about Bush’s latest Supreme Court pick, Harriet Miers:

In the White House that hero worshipped the president, Miers was distinguished by the intensity of her zeal: She once told me that the president was the most brilliant man she had ever met.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Supreme Court Justice Debbie Daniel!

actually, I think this is good news. we may have the new david souter on our hands. if miers really is a devout cult worshipper of dubya, what’s she gonna do when he leaves office in three (or preferably fewer) years? hopefully, bend with the wind, just like souter


Hey, at least you don’t have a uterus.


Debbie Does Dockets!


P.S. !




Too depressing. F***.


Well, I know what’s on my schedule for today: Finding out if tubal ligation is covered by my medical insurance.


Jesus christ. Sorry ladies, I tried (and will continue to try) to talk sense into these people, but it looks like your bodies are government property soon.
I don’t care what she’s like as a person, anyone who could think, even for a second that Bush is anything even approaching mediocre intelligence is dangerously stupid themselves.


So out of curiosity, is it discrimination for an insurance company to deny sterilization on the grounds that one is, more or less, a lesbian? What if you’re getting your insurance as part of a domestic partner coverage deal?
I have a feeling “polyamorous queer” isn’t one of those things they’re going to want to write down, even if I want to tell them.


So the first nominee comes before the Committee, and the Chairman asks “What makes you qualified to sit on the Supreme Court?”

So she answers, “Because I told President Bush he was the most brilliant man I ever met.” So they confirm her, and ask the next nominee, “What makes you qualified to be Secretary of Defense?”

And the guy answers, “Because I told President Bush he was the strongest man in the world.” So they confirm him, and ask the next nominee “What makes you qualified to head the Presidential Commission on Pornography?”

And the guy answers, “Because I told President Bush he was the biggest…”

Thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen, I’ll be here all week.
