Focused like a laser that can chew gum
and…um, laser at the same time
Apparently Roger Simon is unaware of Karl Rove’s problems, John Bolton sitting in the bullpen with his arm getting cold, the Social Security Bumblepalooza, the falling poll numbers, etc. etc. That would explain one of the more interesting observations as to why the Steely-Eyed Rocket Man chose John Roberts to help overturn Roe v. Wade:
Until tonight, to my knowledge I had never heard of U.S. Circuit Judge John Roberts Jr., Bush’s apparent nominee for the Supreme Court vacancy. But I gather some conservatives are upset. I have advice for them – get over it! The reason is very simple — in case you haven’t noticied it, we are at WAR! Quite recently fifty-five or so Britons and others were blown to death in the London tubes at the hands of Islamofascists. American servicemen and Iraqi citizens are dying every day in Iraq in the struggle for democracy. The last thing a wartime president needs at a moment like this is a divisive Supreme Court fight. And for what? I don’t want George Bush spending one ounce of his credit on this and it may be that he feels the same way.
Now I admit I’m a centrist (or more precisely someone who is bored silly by people who identify with 18th Century ideologies and prefers to think for himself), but seriously, folks, what is really going in the world today? Do you want to see the attention of the U. S. President endlessly diverted by partisan bickering and backstabbing instead of focusing like a laser on what is really important – the preservation of Western Civilization?
Which, in turn, would explain why there is that sign on the Oval Office door that reads:
“Quiet. Western Civilization being saved”
Of course the President will get back to fighting the war/saving Western Civilization/writing the last Harry Potter book right after he takes a little break:
Bush originally had planned to announce a replacement for retiring Justice Sandra Day O’Connor on July 26 or 27, just before his planned July 28 departure for a month-long vacation at his Crawford, Texas, ranch, said two administration officials, who spoke on the condition they not be named.
Islamofacism will just have to wait. Have you seen the out of control brush at Casa de Borracho just asking to be cut back?
