Just a couple of points about the looming SCOTUS nominee and the subsequent confirmation/fight/fillibuster/whatever the hell you want to call it.

First of all, this is just bullshit.

Haven't these guys ever heard of a job interview? As a teacher, I can't count the number of times I've had to answer the question, "What is your discipline policy?" Or, better yet, "A fight breaks out between two girls in your room. What do you do?" Naturally, this is a situation I may be faced with at some time in the future. It stands to reason that my employer would want to know how I'm going to react to this type of situation. Doesn't it also stand to reason that the American people should know how a potential Supreme Court Justice will react when faced with a particular situation? Makes sense to me.

Second of all, the most shocking part of this whole debate so far is this:

Apparently Alberto Gonzales is too moderate. Are you shitting me? This is the man who wrote the memos condoning torture. This is the man that called the Geneva Conventions "quaint." WTF? How in the hell is he too moderate? If there was ever an action that could define just exactly how fucking bat-shit crazy these peole are, it's this one right here. How fucking insane do you have to be to think that Al "Torture-boy" Gonzales isn't conservative enough. Maybe they're holding out for someone who doesn't just advocate torture but actually carries through with it.

If nothing else, these guys are entertaining. In a fucked up Paris Hilton sex tape sort of way, but entertaining nonetheless.

BTW - My brother-in-law just got a new shirt. What do you think?
