Paul Slansky of The New Yorker, blogging at the Huffington Post, throws out a nighmare scenario that’s bound to make some of the paranoid and panicked HuffPo liberals choke on their Goreburgers: Bush could name Rove to the Supreme Court.
One commenter tries to ease everybody’s fears by noting that Rove isn’t a lawyer. Let me now throw some of that stress and anxiety back on the pile: You don’t have to be a lawyer to sit on the Supreme Court.
As for Slansky, I trust him, because his biography reeks of unbiased objectivity: “Paul Slansky is a regular contributor to The New Yorker, where his quizzes skewering the beyond contemptible Bush ‘presidency’ have been appearing since the 2000 election was stolen.”
The plagiarization of portions of Dan Rather’s biography aside, I’d give everything I have to see Karl Rove end up on the Supreme Court. I could make all the money back, and then some, in a week — by writing obituaries for liberals who perished from outrage-induced spontaneous cranium combustion.
