George and Harriet's Excellent Adventure

To be honest, I don't know much about the judicial branch or its highest court, but I do know cronyism and comedy when I read it. An article in today's NYTs depicts the cozy relationship between our Chief Executive and one of the women that loves him -- Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers. Throughout the article is sprinkled little portions of letters Miers had written to Bush over their decades long relationship. Here are some of the more humorous ones:
  • "You are the best governor ever - deserving of great respect," Harriet E. Miers wrote to George W. Bush days after his 51st birthday in July 1997. She also found him "cool," said he and his wife, Laura, were "the greatest!" and told him: "Keep up the great work. Texas is blessed."
  • On March 25, on the letterhead of her Dallas law firm, Locke Purnell Rain Harrell, Ms. Miers wrote to thank him "for taking the time to visit in the office and on the plane back - cool!"
  • "Hopefully Jenna and Barbara recognize that their parents are 'cool' - as do the rest of us."
It's good to see that the President has chosen someone with as limited a vocabulary as his. She's like the ugly chick in high school that fawns over the quarterback and his cheerleader girlfriend.

And can't you just wait to read the NYTs choice selects from a future Supreme Court ruling now:
Justice Harriet B. Miers, Dissenting Opinion: The majority opinion in this case is bogus! They are so not cool!
Where's Rufus? Cause we're in dire need of a Brandeis right now.
