It's hard enough to stomach this administration's claims of a "War on Terror," when fighting that war (as if that wasn't ironic enough already) involves taking water and work away from civilians, and thousands of deaths and injuries for Iraqis and American soldiers alike.

But when, today, the Supreme Court negated federal protections for abortion clinics against violence, when the Bush administration supported a "pro-life" group with a validated history of a wide scope of clinic violence, including bombings (again with the irony), all one could really ask oneself was...

What? Bush nominates someone who'll support the extreme right to the Supreme Court?

I don't believe it! Who saw it coming? How could this happen?

(Yeah, I'm no more convincing with playacting than the administration is.)

In a completely unsurprising turn of events, following Bush's failed (though one has to wonder if it wasn't supposed to) attempt to bring the conservative-but-not-conservative-enough Gidget-esque Bush loyalist Harriet Miers into the O'Connor's Supreme Court seat, Bush has now brought in a candidate who Pat Robertson calls "a grand-slam home run."
