Open Thread

The Supreme Court constituted by Bush has shown how reactionary and bankrupt the right wing philosophy is. Definitely not conservative, but extremely reactionary. And most definitely activist. This is what you get when an illegitimate and criminal administration is allowed to corrupt our government.

And where were the Senators whose charge was to protect and defend the Constitution when Bush was foisting upon us these men who hate what our Founding Fathers created? When the Democrats were rolled to letting Bush put forward reactionaries like Alito on the Supreme Court, I wrote:

So I ask again, what gives these Senators (and that is all the Senators, and not just the Democrats, who swore to protect and defend the Constitution) the right to betray our constitution by confirming this man?

...So what deference is due a man who cheated to become President? A man who started a war on lies and then conducted it with complete and total incompetence? A man who while talking about "protecting the American people" failed miserably when Americans faced catastrophic hurricanes that devastated our country? A man who has squandered our good name by conducting a dirty and immoral war that uses torture and secret detentions? A man who has robbed our children and our grandchildren by his spendthrift ways and his ignoring the biggest threat to humankind on the horizon, namely global warming? He has proven himself to be a divisive, incompetent, and arrogant demagogue. What right does he have to name anyone to the Supreme Court for a lifetime appointment?

If Bush is illegitimate, then how can his nominations to the Court be legitimate? And if they are not legitimate, then what's the procedure for getting them removed them from the court?

Your turn now.
