GenderGappers 2005 - 042


You have to admit that it’s been great fun watching the religious rychus ones squirm over the latest nomination to the Supremes. Harriet Miers, Harry to her friends, is just not what they envisioned when Bush told them he would appoint people that would put prayer in schools, eliminate same gender marriage and abortion.

Her nomination has laid bare a supreme example of how the media uses derogatory terms toward Democrats but when Republicans do the same thing, the media calls it by the devious terms Republicans use.

“We need to know her JUDICIAL PHILOSOPHY”, sayeth the Republicans, in their criticism. The media repeats this phrase explaining that Conservatives want someone who will stop gay marriage and abortion. Note that nothing is said about this being a LITMUS TEST as is done when Liberals state their qualifying needs.

This must all be very hard on Harry who obviously has allowed herself to be put into this position out of sheer love and devotion to the person she describes as the most brilliant man she has ever known. Whew! Just another example of exquisite Bushie torture and Harry has to suffer through it with a smile on her face.

Some think she has been put out as a stalking horse, something to take the public’s and media’s attention away from the suppurating pustules of malfeasants in the Bush administration.

Others say that she is just another example of Bush appointing/nominating cronies to any office no matter what their qualifications may be. As of the present moment, most Democrats are waiting for the Senate hearings completely unsure of what to do.

Here’s a suggestion for them . Get busy on putting forward substantiating legislation to aid the poor and in restitution of the damage done in the Gulf States from the recent hurricanes. Bush is already recasting all former Democratic laws and initiatives in his own image hoping to be seen as more compassionate than liberals.

However, as he proceeds, he is tearing down bulwarks that has shorn up the less privileged among us, he has rescinded laws that would give labor a decent wage and has put out the contracts for restoring many areas into the hands of big corporations instead of small local industries and construction businesses.

“But what looked like a chance to talk up new programs is fast becoming a
scramble to save the old ones. Conservatives have already used the storm for causes of their own, like suspending requirements that federal contractors have affirmative action plans and pay locally prevailing wages. And with federal costs for rebuilding the Gulf Coast estimated at up to $200 billion, Congressional Republican leaders are pushing for spending cuts, with programs like Medicaid and food stamps especially vulnerable.”

Whether one is wild about Harry’s nomination or wildly pissed of with it, Liberals must not allow themselves to be led by the nads further down into oblivion by the Bushies. Karl Rove isn’t dead yet and Harry may be forced to resign by her own rychus ones.
