*Spontaneous Entry Alert*
This just in from the "You Gotta be Fucking Kidding Me" files. It now appears that belief in magic is a requirement to be nominated for a seat on the Supreme Court. Quoth the Bush:
"People ask me why I picked Harriet Miers. They want to know Harriet Miers' background. They want to know as much as they possibly can before they form opinions. And part of Harriet Miers' life is her religion."
You chose her because of her religion. That irritates me so bad, it's hard to comment. Says Scott McClellan:
"Faith is very important to Harriet Miers. But she recognizes that faith and that her religion and that her personal views don't have a role to play when it comes to making decisions."
Oh really? Well, since they never discuss what or whose magic Miers believes in, what if she has to make a decision against her faith? We'll assume she's a Xian since the Prez likes her.
What about school prayer? What about a woman's right to choose? The death sentence?
I guarantee she and all the other religious Justices base part if not all of their decisions on their book of magic written a thousand years ago.
Now, to all the fundies who read this and would like to bitch at how stupid I am, think of this:
What if, in the future, the President of the United States nominates a Supreme Court Justice based on their Muslim beliefs? What if they're Hindu? Now you know how I feel. Anyway,
