Iraq is spiraling out of control
. New Orleans is literally under water
, with an estimate of at least 10,000 of it's residents dead. And this is George's top priority at the moment
The Senate will begin confirmation hearings next Monday for John Roberts to be the Supreme Court's chief justice, one week after President Bush selected him to replace the late William H. Rehnquist as the 17th leader of the nation's highest court. Bush urged senators to confirm Roberts before the court session resumes Oct. 3 and said he was considering many candidates for filling a second vacancy. "The list is wide open," Bush said. [...] Senate leaders made the hearings announcement Tuesday as Rehnquist's body lay in repose across the street at the Supreme Court. Roberts, a former Rehnquist clerk, helped carry the flag-draped casket into the building for public viewing.
One incompetent dogmatic decision after another: Iraq is getting worse; New Orleans is all but wiped off the map, the lucky residents are scattered, homeless, shells of their former selves, the unlucky, left to die. Suffering, death, carnage... And priority one for George is getting his under-qualified conservative friend to the position of Chief Justice. Is there nobody in a position of power who will stand up to these absurdities?
