The Butcher's Brilliant Pick for the Supreme Court

Fred Dalton Thompson. Yes. Fred Dalton Thompson. I've got a few promises I've made to myself. One is that the moment Ted Nugent becomes president of the NRA, I will join that organization. Today, I have another one. If Bush nominates Thompson, I will vote Republican for the rest of my life, and I will devote substantial time to singing the praises of GWB.

I'll second that nomination.

And Uncle Ted being in charge of the NRA might make me change my non-joiner stance on that organization as well.

He actually IS a lawyer, AND he plays one on TeeVee.

Plus, he's got an awesome middle name, all Old West-y and stuff.

Thanks to the creative acting choices he has made over the last twenty years, it really isn't a stretch for anyone to imagine him as one of the Supremes.

He'd be great. I mean, shoot, if he can keep Jack McCoy in line...

Plus, Peg, I totally agree that there's something nice about "Dalton" as a name.

S., they've simply got to let Ted be president at some point, right? He'd be great.

During Supreme Court deliberations, they could play the Law & Order music in the background. That would rock.

Interesting choice, I never thought about ole Fred.

I agree that he would make an excellent choice. I've heard him speak before and he isn't a rabid uber-religious radical right winger. He's more down my alley in terms of his commitments to conervative ideals as well his understanding of social realities. And anyone who can survive in Hollywood as an outspoken conservative republican would be able to handle whatever the congress throws at him.

Nice choice Aunt B, but are you really ready to make that kind of commitment?

Now, Tman, you and I both know I need have no fear of anyone in the Bush White House making such an inspired choice for the Supreme Court.

Hey, a guy can dream, can't he?

I'm actually surprised that Bush buckled on Miers. I'm also ecstatic that she withdrew. What a miserable choice after Roberts.

Let's cross our fingers and hope that Junior got the message sent across the bow.

I'm not terribly excited about Roberts, but I thought that he was a wise choice.

And compared to him, Miers was so strange.

I really can't wait for the tell-all books to start coming out about this period in the administration. I'd love to know what the heck is going on behind the scenes.

Good call. There will be some damn good reading coming out in 2009.
