The Republicans have their own "Monica" scandal

    This is why it is so, so, so hard to defend any aspect of the Bush Administration:

    On what planet should a 33-year-old who has <i> never been a prosecutor </i> be making hiring and firing decisions on…<i> U.S. prosecutors </i>? This administration, and Republicans in general, is so hung up on loyalty and this single vision, courtesy of some asshole who went to three colleges and never bothered to graduate. Like Rove, this Monica is more or less a professional in debate, hyperbole and devil's advocacy. Could you imagine being interviewed by this person.

    You know what it reminds me of? The old Mao regime. That's right. That was the crew that used to appoint some guy as a science minister because he had memorized a book of Chinese poems.

    I await the rebuttals about the Clinton administration (because Republicans sole argument to all this nonsense is to tow the loyalty line and trot that bastard out for a couple more blows).
     
  2. It should be noted that the previous Monica went through the London School of Economics and is now working for big money in the private sector. This Monica is a graduate of a third-rate fundamentalist diploma mill, a fourth-rate fundamentalist law school, and has never drawn a paycheck that wasn't wingnut welfare.

    The fact that this isn't really a scandal is what is so sad.

    On what planet should a group of men who never served in the military be running the Pentagon and Department of Defense; or a woman with zero judicial or constitutional law experience be a President's nomination as a Supreme Court Justice; or a man with no emergency management experience be appointed to run FEMA? You could go on all day with that game and the Bush Administration.

    How do you suppose the career employees at justice -- many of whom are quite accomplished -- feel about this lady having been given hiring and firing power?

    Then, think how they feel about it now being public knowledge.

    Jesus loves her. This I know. 'Cause the administration tells me so.

    Really, though, something had to be done about all these activist judges and the apparently not-activist-enough U.S. attorneys.

    Activist judge = disagrees with my position.

    Constitutional judge = agrees with my position.

    I thought Bush got a blowjob when I saw this thread title. Horrifying thought, I know.

    Yes, and I'm quite sure the previous Monica was hired because of her schooling and not because she could suck a golf ball through slick willy's garden hose......

    Well, the first Slick Willy reference took longer than I thought. ::)
     
  12. You're not quite sure about anything because you're a dunce.
    But carry on.
