Bush to nominate far-left liberal to Supreme Court.

Just kidding. You know that's not going to happen but, if the Democrats had the collective sense that God gave a urinal deodorizer disc, they'd certainly be able to make Bush's life uncomfortable about that next choice.

Consider Commander Chimpy's opinion on Intelligent Design in public schools (emphasis added):

Although he said that curriculum decisions should be made by school districts rather than the federal government, Bush told Texas newspaper reporters in a group interview at the White House on Monday that he believes that intelligent design should be taught alongside evolution as competing theories.

"Both sides ought to be properly taught . . . so people can understand what the debate is about," he said, according to an official transcript of the session. Bush added: "Part of education is to expose people to different schools of thought. . . . You're asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas, and the answer is yes."

Well, gosh, if it makes sense for public schools, surely it would make sense for Bush to balance the appointment of the far-right Roberts with a far-left liberal for, you know, balance, being exposed to different ideas and so on.

It's hard to see how the Dems couldn't get some political mileage out of this but we are, after all, talking about a party that, most of the time, can't find its own ass cheeks with both hands. Count on them to fuck this up, too.
