Oliver Willis, like kryptonite to stupid.
President Bush seems to think that this is a threat:Bush operates now within the ironic circumstances of trying to reinforce the relevance of his decisions, after he has shown disrespect for the entire DOJ, FEMA, civil-rights, Osama Bin Laden, and democracy in general."If the Senate Judiciary Committee were to block Judge Mukasey on these grounds, they would set a new standard for confirmation that could not be met by any responsible nominee for attorney general," Bush said in a speech at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank. "That would guarantee that America would have no attorney general during this time of war," the president said.Look, considering the last guy you put into such an important job and the way the Senate stupidly confirmed him, I don't think it's the worst thing in the world for this country to go 13 months without a Bush-appointed attorney general. This administration has already trashed the place, why give them more authority to do so?
Picture a crack-head in a D.A.R.E. t-shirt, and you've got it.
