And Then, King of the World

From The Corner comes one reader's advice on how to deal with the Miers pick:

make Chaka the designated driver and go eat bbq, drink beer and watch baseball all day long. After about the third beer and second order of ribs, you'll realize that the Democrats still don't have a plan for the future, their base hates their leadership, and if Miers is only a tiny little ity bit right of O'Connor, that's not too bad a pick. And after 6 beers, remind each other that Hillary Clinton was probably on a President Kerry's short list. Say that over and over and over again. Chief Justice Hillary Clinton. We won, they lost...smile it's not so bad.

These people really think John Kerry would've nominated Hillary Clinton to Chief Justice of the United States of America. They really do! It's as if the whole Democratic party and everyone in it exists only to further propel her career, the vast left win conspiracy is really just Hillary's personal job placement service. And it's not just the readers, Kathryn Jean Lopez, a top editor at the National Review, thought this an incisive enough note to elevate onto the front page -- this one was just too good to languish in her mailbox.

These people are nuts.

They're nuts but the people they vote into power aren't any more stable. It's turtles all the way down. Rotten, psychotic turtles...

Don't take it too far. The above quoted paragraph is a literally correct depiction of Democratic reality except for the shite about Hillary. A POX on Hillary. She may be a fine senator, and more power to her AS A SENATOR, but anything else? NO! She and her ilk are THE problem with the Democrats. She and her ilk are the DLC which IS the rotten soul of the current (and dying) Democratic Party.

The Dem leadership DOES piss off the base to the extreme. Hell, I've been a lifelong Democrat until just a few days ago when all the triangulate, tack right-and-left, chickens with their heads cut off, no direction, drop the ball, stab yourselves in the back by voting yes on Roberts, ignore all the GIFTS the GOP is handing to the Dems DLC/Democratic "leadership" became too much to swallow anymore.

For the first time in my voting/political history, I told the fundraisers for the Dem Party to take a hike. I'm never giving the Party another dime of my hard-earned cash, little though that is (thanks to the DLC-GOPlite Democratic leadership). I am happy to give money to individual deserving and courageous candidates, but the Party? Die already.

The bit about Hillary being on Kerry's short list for Chief Justice IS insane. She'd certainly be better than Miers, but then again, Miers is an insane choice too. Neither actually belongs on the Supreme Court.

"I am happy to give money to individual deserving and courageous candidates, but the Party? Die already."

The only intelligent, ethical, and practical position remaining. I salute you, sir. However, oppose the Party, support progressives, but don't actually throw way your vote. Republicans are still worse. Marginally.

Not to defend National Review or anything, but Kathryn Lopez is pretty stupid even by their standards.

James Dobson said pretty much the same thing in the run-up to the election, when asked what the worst thing that could happen in a Kerry presidency. The Republican base seems afraid of some pretty irrational things.

Posted by: Craig | Oct 4, 2005 3:36:14 PM

Freudian projection, or appealing to their base, or still smarting over losing to Bill?

Or all three?

Or the fact that fantasy is played out after 6 Beers and two orders of ribs . . . I didn't read the entire thing, just the excerpt, but it seems to me the writer had his tongue planted firmly (in a red state) between his cheek and chew.

This could very well be hyperbole. Or general sloppiness. I mean, I follow politics pretty closely, and I can't think off the top of my head who a realistic liberal SCOTUS pick would be. Nominating Hillary is just shorthand for nominating someone far to the left. More likely than not, the person doesn't literally think she'd have been nominated.

Posted by: Tim | Oct 4, 2005 5:24:43 PM

Yes, Tim just said what I was about to say. To the limited intellects on the right Hillary is an ultra-lefty, never mind reality. They have to keep shouting that or else those pesky facts will get in the way. Anyway, if Hillary were to be nominated, then Pataki would get to pick her successor which I would think would be another point in her favor. I think that after Miers flames out Junior should nominate the junior senator ending her presidential ambitions and giving a Thug a leg up in the 2006 election.

Posted by: J Bean | Oct 4, 2005 9:56:42 PM

Good grief . . . the emailer wrote a somewhat funny message on the effects of alcohol on topics of conversation and it become "limited intellect" of the Right. I actuallly clicked through this time and what Ezra quoted was the sum total of the post.

2 Orders of Ribs and 6 Beers: Meat Sweats + Buzz = somewhat incoherent thought processes. And, yes, I know that a colon equals an equals sign, as my English Professor likes to remind me when she proofreads my briefs, so the extra equals sign was probably not needed.

The erectile dysfunction drug viagra has been proved to be a boon for cancer patients with recent experiments demonstrating that on administering Viagra one hour before the intake of anti-cancer medication doxorubicin (DOX), the drug reduces heart damage. As results of this kind start pouring in, it has become clear that along with becoming an efficient tool in combating erectile dysfunction Viagra is a suitable anti-cancer measure also and so this drug can be completely trusted. You can buy viagra online, treat impotency and revive sexual pleasure in your life. But only by opting for viagra online you will be able to procure cheap viagra and so the sooner you get hold of Viagra from an authentic online drug store the better it would be for your health.

Three phrases should be among the most common in our daily usage. They are: Thank you, I am grateful and I appreciate.
