Will laughter be death knell for Miers?
Writings personal, professional inspire mockery of Supreme Court nominee

"an obsequious tone and a tortuous prose style. "I am respectful of both of your great many time commitments and I realize you receive many, many requests," she wrote. "Of course, I would be very pleased if either of you is able to participate. However, I will be pleased with your judgment about whether participating in this event fits your schedule whatever your decision. . . . I feel honored even to be able to extend this invitation to such extraordinary people.""

That's more uncomfortable then being walked in on by your mom while you are with a girl watching a Ron Jeremy film.

If that's all it takes to wipe out a Supreme Court nominee then the position will never be filled.

Nah, no comparison to Quayle based on that evidence. Obsequious is different from total idiot.

Just look at LHMark's signature to see a real gem of DQ's.

And some others:

" I love California. I practically grew up in Phoenix."

" We're going to have the best-educated American people in the world"

"A low voter turnout is an indication of fewer people going to the polls."

"Republicans understand the importance of bondage between a mother and child."

"The Holocaust was an obscene period in our nation's history. I mean in this century's history. But we all lived in this century. I didn't live in this century."

I doubt I'll like Miers, or find her particularly intelligent, but the Danster was in a class by himself...

Oh, I just cannot resist a few more Quaylisms:

"If we do not succeed, then we run the risk of failure."

"We are on an irreversible trend towards more freedom and democracy - but that could change."

"We are ready for any unforeseen event that may or may not occur."



AND THE BEST FOR LAST:

"Mars is essentially in the same orbit...Mars is somewhat the same distance from the Sun, which is very important. We have seen pictures where there are canals, we believe, and water. If there is water, that means there is oxygen. If oxygen, that means we can breathe."

--Vice President Dan Quayle, Hawaii, 8/11/89 (interview broadcast on CNN, referenced in 9/1/89 Washington Post article: "A Quayle Vision of Mars")

Now that might be a better comparison...  stirthepot

The Bushes (I and II) sure don't know how to pick intelligent, qualified people to high ranking positions.

I guess it's in their DNA...

I think Miers is worse than Qualye because after 4 years, he was gone from the political scene. Miers, if her health holds up will be spewing her gushing narratives full of mediocrity from the high bench for decades.

Who would have thought that it was Bush himself who has brought down his coalition of neo, religious, social, and economic conservatives in one swoop with his abhorrent pick?



Tort reform now. Throw lawyers in jail later.

I see why your RR is still at 0, even the usual suspects on the right won't save you this time.

IIRC Dan Qyale ALWAYS had his foot in his mouth...W only looses it when he ad-libs.

I honestly respect him for this. He Knew he was always going to be associated with his flubs and one of the worst presidents in modern history. I just wish John Kerry and Al Gore had the same sense of, I'm never going to win, so F-it. The thought of watching these vain idiots (along with Dean) screwing up the Democrats chance at SMOKING the Republicans for the next few years is very dis heartening.

The RR rating doesn't bother me a bit and my real friends on the right aren't on this board although that doesn't really mean that much either since I am not always on the right.

Ya know TedT, I had the great opportunity to interview Dan Quayle while I worked for a news/talk station in Nashville some years ago. I found him to be quite intelligent and extremely knowledgable on a number of topics. Although he would have every reason to be bitter about his treatment by the press he is not and has moved on to other things of more interest to himself. That alone speaks volumes about his character. Can you say, without a doubt, that you have never flubbed a line, mis-spoken, or misquoted someone? I think not. Has your spelling always been perfect? I think not. Some people are naturals in public, they have a natural charisma, others are not so fortunate. That they are not does not make them any less a great leader. Such a shame that in today's environment if you don't exude TV star qualities of perfection you are some how deemed less than perfect and not fit for office. Kind of makes you wonder how Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, and especially FDR would have faired in today's world.
