Not To Keep Flogging A Judicial Horse

Or even the back half of one, but for sheer irony and/or outright deceit, video of the announcement of Justice Steven David's appointment is hard to beat.

Governor Daniels -- make that "former Presidential hopeful Daniels" -- covers himself with FAIL as he praises the man to the high heavens and assures the public the new Justice "...will interpret, rather than invent, our laws."

Not exactly.

Oh, this is delicious! Imagine the negative ad possibilities.

I for one have trouble placing all the blame for this on Daniels. You think you know a guy, you appoint him, and then he takes a dump on you.

Well, as I recall, Reagan appointed a few duds, too. At least we can get rid of this one in 2012.

And with any luck Daniels won't run for President anyway. I still think Cherie will put a stop to that if he starts to get too serious about it.

Let's see, Trump's out, Huckleberry Hound's Out, Daniel's Idiocy means he's not getting my vote, Frack Romney, heck, if this keeps up it'll be Newt vs. Paul for the Republitard Nomination. Gee, which crotchety old Idealist do you think can win the Hearts and Minds of the Under-65 Demographic and beat the Anointed One?

Between the global warming nonsense and individual mandates nonsense and the "right-wing social engineering nonsense," Noot's toast too, and good riddance to bad rubbish. I'm down to Herman Cain (even if he is a squish on the Fed) and Ron Paul.

Meanwhile, the US Supreme Court says that the po-po can kick down your door without a warrant if they "hear evidence of illegal activity"--i.e., the toilet flushed, they must be trying to destroy evidence of something--as long as they yell "Police" first.

You know there's something wrong when the ONLY Supreme Court judge you agree with is Ruth Bader Ginsberg...

WV: ploodstu. Quite the delicacy on Q'Nos, I understand.

Git a rope.

Bubble, I'd vote for Herman Cain for Prez in a New York millisecond. I've been listening to him substituting for Neal Boortz for years.

Unlike the present Oval One, he is 100% African, and also 100% American.

He is not really good as a radio guy, because, like Paul Craig Roberts, he talks very slowly, thinking about what he is saying.

WV: uncul. Yah, he's uncool, but I think we need a grownup for the job.
