The Chimp in Charge announced his latest nominee to the Supreme Court - Samuel Alito. The right-wing has been foaming at the mouth over the idea that an umarried woman ("At her age? Gotta be a dyke!") could hold their political fortunes in her hand... So out goes Harriet "You're the bestest prez ever!" Myers and in comes the guy nicknamed "Scalito." (A guy who was recently given $250,000 in Exxon/Mobil stock
- a convenient pick me up for working in the Bush administration. I think it comes with the business cards.)
One of the best lines about the new nominee comes from Pam's House Blend:
Now, what's this I hear about a "Scalito"? That sounds like some sort of shrimp-based Mexican dish, doesn't it? "Yo quiero una Scalito grande, por favor, con frijoles negro y salsa picante!" Whatever it is, it's giving me heartburn already...
