…I received my usual ‘take action alert’ email from them today, however this one was a bit entertaining given the political climate in this country and the state of women’s reproductive rights. It parodies the growing threat of Dubya appointing an uber-c0nservative, vehemently anti-choice/anti-contraceptives ideologue to the Supreme Court, with an interesting ‘help wanted ad’ and a humorous list of possible nominees for the job of Supreme Court justice.
Bush’s current applicants to the Supreme Court are: a Scalia clone. A judge who failed to earn a “qualified” rating by a state bar commission – TWICE. And a judge who upheld an abortion ban that was later found unconstitutional by the Supreme Court…
Yes indeed, President Bush has been working REALLY hard to gather applications for this job, and frankly, we think he needs a break! So here’s your chance to help Bush for once…
Pick the Supreme Court applicant YOU think is best in line with the strict qualifications and legal expertise of president’s current short-list:
Cartman from South Park
“Respect my authoritay!”
“The constitution? That’s HOT.”
“I already have the black robe.”
The Cast of the O.C.
“Upping the Supreme Court’s ratings with a little beach drama”
(Would be novel to see someone on the Supreme Court who’s as obsessed with people’s sex lives as Scalia. We call a Lawrence v. Texas rematch!)
And yes, I just had to pick my favorite ‘choking-everyone-who-irritates-him’ villain, Darth Vader. So who should get the job from this “wonderful” list of nominees?
