I told you so - Miers steps down

Well, it appears that after weeks of heated discussion, and assurances by the President that Harriet Miers would be confirmed, the wise drug whore who would be supreme court justice has stepped down. So now what? Who will be the next nominee? I will make one guess: Gonzales our current attorney General who used to sit on the Texas supreme court. He fits the part - he's a minority and not Miers. And he's Bush's favorite dancing latino monkey.

He's also the one who drafted the memo concerning whether the Geneva Convention applied to enemy combatants, like the Taliban or Al Qaeda, in regards to holding them indefinitely and, I believe, on matters of torture. "Gonzales concluded that Article III[of the Geneva Convention] was outdated and ill-suited for dealing with captured Al Qaeda and Taliban fighters." - wikipedia.org

He's also 100% behind the patriot act.

A 2002 Justice Department memorandum cleared by Gonzales argued that laws prohibiting torture do "not apply to the president's detention and interrogation of enemy combatants", and that the pain caused by interrogation must include "injury such as death, organ failure, or serious impairment of body functions— in order to constitute torture".

He's got one major snag if nominated - his rulings in the past concerning the super polarizing topic of Abortion. He came down on the wrong side if you're a righty extremist. But, he's qualified and very friendly to the administration's causes.

Who knows. I am just having fun guessing. Maybe Bush will go one better than Miers and pick someone totally unqualified, like his barber or drug dealer. I am sure he's known them for "more than a decade". And, in Bush's mind that's more than qualified.

Ok, so who's with me on this one? What do you think? Let's hear it!
