Here Comes The Judge, Here Comes.... Whoops.... There Goes The Judge

In a major embarrassment for the White House, Bush's nominee for the Supreme Court, Harriet Miers, has withdrawn her name from further consideration. Serious questions had been raised about her qualifications, and even a number of conservative groups had been criticizing the choice. That was surprising, since Miers is an evangelical Christian who had previously written papers opposing abortion. However, she apparently wasn't enough of an avowed, bloodthirsty, foaming-at-the-mouth Christian to suit the far right, so they turned on her. And there are few things in this world more frightening than the feeding frenzy that erupts when conservatives devour their own.

It is unclear whom Bush will nominate next, but an obvious choice would be Judge Judy. First of all, the American people are very familiar with her, so there shouldn't be any surprises in her background. Judge Judy runs a tight ship when it comes to managing her courtroom, and she doesn't put up with crap from anybody. And if any Senators step out of line while questioning her, she won't hesitate to kick their asses around the hearing room a few times.
