Is Meir's sexual identity an issue? The Donkey knows Democrat's sexual identities are always an issue.

Fienstein (sp?) didn't vote for Roberts because she did not know what kind of "man" he was. What kind of husband and father he was...

so will dem's now oppose this woman because she has never been married and has no kids?

The game has more waffles than a house of pancakes restaurant. The donkey was wrong about Bush being the game's hero. The game worships the drug addict. The druggie who also shirked his duty to military service. The game needs to come up with own ideas instead of parroting the anal cyst boy.

I agree,Dedanna. Ron says she's an evangelical. (Why do we need to be born again? Isn't once enough?) If her religious beliefs are more important to her than a strict interpretation of The Constitution we could be in trouble here, not only on the right to choose, but a whole lot of other things.
I saw an article that said she leans toward abortion rights, is in favor of rights for gays, women, etc. She's also in favor of gun rights. The article said she's a moderate. It was an Associated Press article, tho, and I don't have a lot of faith in the AP which seems more pro-Bush than not.

Wow Donkey, I am overwhelmed with your ability to form groundbreaking arguments.

Award winners like..
anal cyst boy
and
The game worships the drug addict.

Lets see, the Left is supposedly the party of compassion for those in need...
So do you think anyone on drugs should be put in jail or discarded?

Anyone addicted to anything, is it your position that they are pieces of crap that deserve no help...

Now donkey, focus really hard...try and answer my question. I know it will be hard for you to stay on topic, but try and stick to my comments only...

It was pretty much Limbaugh's stand that drug addicts were pieces of crap that did not deserve any help.
Of course it is DIFFERENT when the drug addict is him.
Dumb kids who get addicted don't deserve help -- we should just lock THEM up. That was pretty much HIS stand. Never mind HE was not young when he got addcited. AND he must have known the risks since he does not think he is ignorant.
Although that is certainly questionable.

Speaking for myself, no.

Speaking for myself, no.

I would think a whole lot of people would be turned off by a drug addict that thought they should all be locked up for a long time...oh except if I turn out to be one myself...I meant all those "bad" drug addicts.

I am more concerned with the separation of church and state issue than with anything else.

I would have voted her out just for this reason alone.

Yes, she *used* to be moderate, but once she became Christianized, this all changed for her.

That says it all.

Game,
I think the issue for us here is Limbaugh's hypocrisy. I totally believe in helping drug addicts and alcoholics on the way to recovery. We need more rehabs and less prisons which are basicallly revolving doors, but,hey, building them makes money for contracters, right? Would think that building more rehab centers would make money for them, too, but in today's political climate, the funding for prisons is probably easier to get.

Democat,
I have to give you congrat for making a sane argument that used thought instead of pure emotion...

I guess there is some hypocracy with Rush in the context that he was so hard on drug addicts (I never heard this speech, but I'll have to take your word for it).

However, if the Left is so willing to help everyone who is on drugs, how can you bash Rush then...shouldn't you feel sorry for him and want to help him..

And the fact that he was addicted to pain killers that many American's have trouble with doesn't make his points invalid.

"George Bush is the most brilliant man that I have ever met." ... Harriet Miers

The Donkey knows it is pain to give people credit for their ideas. It is better to post their ideas as your own and make your self appear smarter. So the donkey has no appologies about stealing this information.

"Last year, then Deputy Chief of Staff Harriet Miers hosted four sessions of Ask the White House -- "an online interactive forum where you can submit questions to Administration officials and friends of the White House." Miers' responses suggested some characteristics that one might not necessarily associate with a prospective Supreme Court justice:

o She appeared to be comfortable with allowing blocks of text borrowed from other authors to be published under her name without any acknowledgement or formal attribution.
o She did not seem to feel obligated to ensure that her writings published at the official White House Web Site were proofread to identify and correct glaring errors.
o She appeared willing to continue to recite partisan political talking points after they had been largely dismissed as inaccurate or misleading to the public."

Formal attribution is for liberals. The Donkey is going to post like the game and Meir.

Well, thanks for your comment, Game. My problem with Rush is not that he's a drug addict. My dad was an alcoholic. Legal or not, it still is a drug and I would hope I would have some sympathy for substance abusers. (And would we, like, trash Elvis, too-I hope not.)
My problem with Limbaugh is that he is the one most responsible for the political division in this country because he #1 redefined the word Liberal and #2 he has played on the fears and frustrations of "the angry white man" by blaming EVERYONE but the greedy and wealthy corporations and the corrupt politicians who cater to them. He has made many millions of dollars doing this and yes, he loves Bush because the latter has tried so hard to make sure Rush won't have to pay taxes on all those millions of dollars. He is a hypocrite!!

To The Game:
Was thinking about what you said about me getting credit for making a sane argument based on logic instead of emotion and realized that maybe it wasn't a compliment but sarcasm over ALL of my other posts. Realize I am "catty" a lot, but hope I have provided some good info and used logic to justify my views, too.
FYI-Re: emotion-I am from Venus and not Mars, so expect me to be emotional (What's wrong with emotions? People with NO emotions are "Vulcans" (supressed emotions) or psychotics)
Also, I am a "moonchild", so my emotions will fluctuate and I tend to be moody and often, "crabby". Watch out during the full moon, too!
As I was born in "the Year of the Dog", I tend to be very loyal and you have probably noted that I am loyal to my party (Dem.) and to Liberals and to my idol, Kerry, so you may not want to go that route with me.
On a further note, it is a sad thing that Democat must share BOTH signs with Bush (her lucky oldest child shares his with Kerry). Bush is a pitbull who is too stubborn to admit it when he makes a mistake and is loyal to the wrong people (neo-cons and religious fanatics). Of course, dogs are almost always loyal to their masters (even bad masters) and we know who Bush's master is. (Coincidentally Cheney was born in "The Year of the Snake" and there is a real type of poisonous snake called the Bushmaster.)
My Republican ex called me yesterday to ask me if I'd heard Bush's last speech, the one where he promised to rain death and destruction down on The Middle East. He thinks Bush is insane. Gotta wonder if the moon is ALWAYS full for Bush or if he's a Cancer who's somehow managed to be ruled by Mars rather than the moon. Just another EMOTIONALLY based comment from me to you.

From Molly Ivins' 10/4 column
Meirs' chief qualification for job seems to be loyalty to Bush and the team.
Could've been worse (Owens, Jones, or one of the TX boy judges)
Meirs-classic TX conservative establishment with the addition of Christian fundamentalism (her church believes in biblical inerrancey, full immersion baptism, original sin, and that salvation is ENTIRELY dependent on accepting Jesus Christ. Everyone else is going to the bad place!
She used to be backed by feminists because her conservatism made her acceptable to the TX establishment despite being a female.
She USED to be pro-choice, but is not anymore due to having had some kind of Christian religious experience. When pressed, she has admitted that she believes one should legally be allowed to discriminate against gays and lesbians (also influenced by her religious beliefs). Molly is TX born and bred and has been reporting from there for many years. If she believes there will be no separation of church and state with Meirs, I guess you can trust her judgement.
Also, IF Congress did actually vote to impeach Bush and Cheney I guess, we could expect at least 6 members of the Supreme Court to overturn this when it was appealed. Scalia and Thomas, for sure, and since Roberts and Meirs would owe their appointments to Bush, we know how they would vote. Also, what about when the hated Delay and Rove are convicted and appeal their convictions? To paraphrase Alice- Things are just getting scarier and scarier.

P.S.
Anonymous is Infinite Odyssey and she has met Boy George. Also The Beatles*. Also, she went to High School with Glen Frey of The Eagles. She is VERY well traveled.
I have urged her to talk about her experiences on the show because people would love to hear about them.
* I have seen her photos of them and of Paul and Linda with her and know this is true. Pretty Cool!!

Oct. 7, 2005, Real Time with Bill Maher:

snip:

This week, President Bush had to nominate a Supreme Court judge, and he picked the most qualified person within 30 feet of his office. Her qualifications: well, she is a lawyer and former commissioner of the Texas State Lottery. And she's seen every episode of "Judging Amy." Abortion, affirmative action, separation of church and state. Yeah, let's ask the lady who peddled scratch tickets to liquor stores.

LMAO.

Does he just go with the first person he sees? I wouldn't be surprised if Laura was his sister. Now, of course - I keep checking with him - of course, George Bush isn't the first politician to hand out graft gigs to his pals, but he doesn't seem to understand that that's what the b.s. jobs are for: ambassador to the Bahamas. The Recycling Czar. Head of the CIA. But George Bush puts stooges where they can do real damage: Director of FEMA? That guy from the horsie show is available. U.N. Ambassador? Dick Cheney knows a guy with a mustache and anger issues.

Supreme Court justice? Lady down the hall. Labor Secretary? The guy who helped me move that hooker's body at Yale could probably do it. You know - you know, Mr. President, when you got elected, we all figured you were no genius, but smart enough to hire qualified people. But it turns out you're just a dimwit who enjoys feeling superior. And the only way to accomplish that is to surround yourself with the likes of Mike Brown and Harriet Miers: Goober and Aunt Bea. Unspectacular souls who make you feel comfortable and unthreatened. Kind of like when Madonna used to hang out with Rosie O'Donnell.

Well, I hate to burst your bubble. But real friends are the ones who tell you the truth. They're also the ones who work hard so as not to embarrass you. These people who work for you aren't behaving like friends. They're behaving far worse. They're behaving...like family.

Yes, it's almost enough to make you miss the old pre-"honor and integrity" days. Because at least when Clinton talked about tapping the woman down the hall, he was just having sex with her.
