Down in the inner sanctum sanctorum of the offices of RUFNKM, we got a big kick out of listening to our President outline Harriet Miers' qualifications for Supreme Court Justice. We hadn't really thought much about who Bush would nominate because we just assumed it'd be a White House political crony with very little relevent experience. Or, to put it the way the lovely and talented jaynieinbmore did when we heard the President say, "Over the past five years I've spoken clearly to the American people about the qualities I look for in a Supreme Court justice": "They gotta be one ah mah friends!" Were we suprised when she turned out to be right? Of course not. So our usual urge was briefly suppressed.

Then we heard that among her vast achievments in government was a stint on the Dallas City Council. "ARE YOU EFFIN' KIDDING ME?" echoed throughout the offices. It's not that there's anything silly about serving in city government. Quite the contrary; if there's a government position less deserving of scorn than Senator, City Council Rep is it. But if you've got to reach back to that for a political resume, you are padding. And just so's we can show off that we do the "someone else thinks the same thing as us so we must be right" thing as well as Malkin or Powerline, we note that MaxSpeak speaks the same thing.
