The last nail in "kinder, gentler"
I hope that [Supreme Court nominee John G.] Roberts has absolutely zero sympathy, never mind empathy, for people who think that the goverment exists to micromanage the personal situations of every single citizen in this country. I dream of frosty, remote, unapproachable mandarins in black robes to counter the current fashion we have for turning every single branch of government over to Spongebob Squarepants.
This suggests a plan for W.: sack Darth Rove for his participation, however innocuous, in l'affaire Plame, and then post him to a Court of Appeals somewhere. People would actually TiVo C-Span just to see the hearings on his nomination.Posted at 8:12 AM to Political Science Fiction
