It's Sunday morning, why did they run the story: "Bush Still Considering High Court Vacancy"


Because it's a freebie for Charlie and Cherie Churchie?

Because it's a cool photo-op to catch the sun-dappled Royal Family?

Because even though he said nothing he gets to look like he's thinking?

Because when they choose Alberto "Geneva Conventions? Shmeneva Conventions!" Gonzales to join like-minded John "Torture? Of course sir!" Roberts on the Supreme Court, it will look like he deliberated on it for some time despite the fact that this article offers no proof since he didn't even stop to say a damned thing to anybody? And because this type of faux-journalism by the neutral Associated Press does nothing but kiss Reich House ass in a way that will ensure they get more "access" to key Nazi political figures than other "mainstream" or "liberal" media outlets who get shut out in favor of Fox?

Because us Karl Rovebots don't know any better, and now assume this is "news"?

Bush Still Considering High Court Vacancy


By DEB RIECHMANN, Associated Press Writer 16 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - President Bush is still working on his decision to pick a successor to retiring Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, his chief of staff said Sunday.

The president is "still considering lots of options," Andy Card said at the White House. Asked whether the announcement would be made on Sunday, Card replied, "Doesn't have to be today."

As Bush returned from Camp David on Sunday morning, he declined to answer a reporter's question about whether he had settled on a candidate for the high court. The president smiled and waved to the press corps as he got off Marine One and strolled across the South Lawn with Laura Bush, but did not say a word.


Bush then planned to attend a worship service for members of the legal profession. Several members of the Supreme Court were expected to attend the service, known as the Red Mass, at a church a few blocks from the White House.

On Monday, Bush was going to the Supreme Court for the formal ceremony at which John Roberts assumes the role of chief justice. Roberts was confirmed by the Senate and sworn in at the White House on Thursday to succeed the late Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist.

The court's 2005-2006 term gets under way Monday.

Okay.

I was wrong.

That's cool.

I'm right about a tonne of shit, so if any of you can prove me wrong, please: let me know.

Like I said, I'm cool, and it'll just help me grow...

So...

Dubya's just gonna let Al Gonzales take over for Ashcroft, and carve up the Bill of Rights and Constitution as Attorney General.

Great.

So I guess we won, right?

Instead, he chose a glorified law CEO who's never been a judge but who's covered his ass numerous times, including both his missing military service (records) and his drunk-driving charge when he was called for jury-duty.

Great.

So I guess we won, right?

Even in today's press conference he stressed what he's being told by Karl Rove to stress on purpose: trust him.

Once he says that and a few people do, they become lil' GOP attack-puppies who defend him no matter what happens, corporations play ball and instruct their minions too, and this ensures the White House Press Corpse does as well.

It's funny, even the easy questions (there are no hard ones) gave him a tonne of stress, and at the end of his press conference he bolted out of the box like a rabbit at a pitbull poker-party.

He didn't say he chose the best Supreme Court Judgess for the country; he didn't say we could review any of her "decisions" since as a lawyer (and not a judge) none of them are public; he said Executive Privilege is a necessary good to prevent us from learning anything about her; and that the hearings where she'll answer all questions (like Chief Justice Roberts didn't) would be a good enough litmus test to streamline her coronation in the one-party democracy called The Senate, where Democrats won't even try to stop this madness because they are afraid to stand on principle alone and wrisk the wrath of The Homeland's Dictatorship.

(sigh)

She's incredibly loyal to this asshole, and may God have mercy on our soldiers...

Peace, (NOW!!!)
BK
