11. Yeah. I have figured out it is a bullshit nomination.
Bushco placed their former AT&T general counsel as acting AG. It is insulting. It reminds me of those carnival guys who have three cups and one marble. You remember the trick. You watch the guys hands real close but he gets ya everytime. That stuffed pony stays on that damn hook.

So monkeybutt nominates a retired federal judge, but in the same breath, tells you that he has "decided" that someone who has already tendered their resignation in disgrace to, spend more time with AT&T, oops, I meant with the family. He might as well have made a recess appointment. Because in essence, that is just what it is.

According to Leahy, he's not allowing anyone a confirmation hearing until he gets all the shit he's been asking for since February.

Think about it. You think the WH is going to give up now. I. Don't. Think. So. They ain't turning over shit. So really, his nomination is just cover for moving the WH hack to the front position.

Now Bushco's next move, is to secure immunity for the telecoms.


Oh yeah, the Dems are going to fight and fight hard, but in the end they will capitulate, as they always do.

...On Habeas Corpus, FISA, Iraq, DOJ(Which encompasses US Attorneys, Torture, and troop withdrawal.


"Well, they have no spines." They MUST compromise or they will "alienate the moderates". Or "the base has unrealistic expectations regarding ending the war". Along with other assorted bullshit stories.
