"Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities" --Voltaire

Well then that pretty much rules you out, buddy.

In what may well be one of the most laughable remarks made by a wingnut in recent history, Samuel "scAlito" Alito says somthing that is undeniably true, but fails to realize how it applies to him in the negative.

Quoth Scalito: "Good judges don't have an agenda, don't look for partisan outcomes and always 'do what the law requires' "

Come on, Sammy, the only reason that The Chimp even considered you is because you will carry water for him and HIS imperial agenda, which you share.

More laughable still was a remark from Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) asking the Senate not to let politics enter into the confirmation process

"We must apply a judicial, not a political, standard to this record," Hatch said.

Bullshit, Senator.

Everyone George W. Bush has nominated to the bench or to positions in his cabinet has been for expressly political purposes and not because they were genuinely and sincerely the best person for the job.

*Mike Brown at FEMA: yeah, a low level horse-show lawyer as the guy in charge of disaster response. Best man for the job? Hardly. He certainly did a "heck of a job" with that whole Hurricane Katrina situation now, didn't he.

*Bernie Kerik even nominated for the USDHS? Hah. It took a rare moment of the media taking the Rove-tool out of their mouths and raising questions about his personal ethics to de-rail that guy.

*Harriet Meiers: No nothing political there other than her gross and blatant sycophancy

*Priscilla Owen: Right-wing fanatic to appease The Base

*Need i go on?

No, Strip-search Sammy is no different, Bush and/or his handlers want to create an over-powerful Executive branch in order to give themselves carte blanche to whatever abuses they wish to commit and they need someone to interpret the Constitution in such a way as to grant their wish.

The agenda behind his appointment, Senator Hatch, is nakedly political and you insult the intelligence of millions to even imply otherwise.
