    Not legal to name Michelle. Nepotism laws and all that. Besides, we don't want a bigot on the court, do we?
    Speaking of exploding heads look what popped up.

    I guess that just leaves Hillary then.

    And no way is he going to name the Red Queen. There hasn't been a Weatherman on the bench yet...
    Not likely to be either is there?

    The only guarantee is that Obama will name someone who's purpose is to destroy the Constitution.
    Like electing bush.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Not even the Dems are stupid enough to put HIllary up there.

    You just cannot fabricate the level of denial and irony such statements require.
    I never said that there weren't hate mongers on the left. I said that we need to be better than the hate-mongers on the right, and I thought it was clear that I was telling ncfy to not be a hate-monger. I thought it was clear, but apparently you need everything in small words.

    I mentioned Coulter specifically because she's talked about poisoning Justices that disagree with her. If he was doing something reminescent of Olbermann or something that I found objectionable, I'd comment about that too.

    And yes, I QUESTION their patriotism, every minute of the day.
    First, try to get into their head. Why do you think they want to, as you put it, "destroy the constitution"?

    Secondly, if you're too obstructionist, you opponents will use it to attack you during elections, and you risk ending up being a rump minority party, capable of doing very little. It's basic strategy. If the Dems come back in 2010 and say "yes things suck, they would have gotten better, but Republicans obstructed this, this, and this, which would have made things better," you risk being in deep trouble.

    If not him, Obama will name someone else. The only guarantee is that Obama will name someone who's purpose is to destroy the Constitution.

    He is a Democrat after all.
    What do you think Obama's motivation is for "destroy[ing] the Constitution"?

    If Coulter said it, it's okay because she's a hot blonde. j/k Obama's motivation for destroying the Constitution is because he knows it's at odds with European Socialism.

    And why does he supposedly want European Socialism, do you suppose?

    Power would be my guess based on liberalism's usual goals.

    I think that's a very erroneous and simplistic view, that they just want power. We're talking about real people, often with developed ideologies, not comic book villains.
