My prediction for Sup. Ct. pick and Plame stuff
I predict that next week Bush will name an ultra conservative Sup. Ct. nominee. Talking heads have been saying that he will go easy because his approval is so low that he can't win a prolonged battle.

BS. They know hell is coming from the Plame GJ and this will be the only way to distract from it a bit. Creating a huge to do in the Senate that may not be good politically but it's better than all the focus being on the Plame issue.

That's my prediction.

1. And I agree with you
It will be one of those two women he just got confirmed.

Then they can say how open and inclusive they are and how dare we oppose a gentle woman from the old south .... or ***gasp*** a black woman.

4. If they really want a distraction, Bush should nominate Ken Starr
Personally, I can guarantee you, my head would explode!
