Or maybe I'll just stay here

So far here in Dublin--happily--I have not had to discuss US politics. It's been a bit like that alcoholic relative everyone knows is a lush but no one asks about. We did have a chat with the cab driver and a Spaniard fellow-passenger about the EU constitution debacle; the Irish/French consensus in that cab was that the document was needlessly complex and that people felt they were being asked/pressed to agree to something they did not understand.

Meanwhile I see back in beloved homeland the Dems are bending over while Bush shoves his wannabe Supreme Court justice everyone's keester. Let's see...the man thinks torture is constitutional but abortion and protecting the environment are not; the government should be allowed to keep energy task force records secret; disabled workers should have their claims limited; and twelve year olds should be arrested for eating french fries on subways.

And yet, what does my fine Senator say?
"Do I believe this is a filibuster-able nominee? The answer would be no, not at this time I don't," said Sen. Dianne Feinstein
Fucking Feinstein. It's a pity we don't have the technology for retroactive abortion. The rest of her partners in infamy join her in that opinion.
