The right wing is every bit as disillusioned as the left wing. Compare the quotes below with the posts in our own threads here.

From Daily Dish:

I think people under-estimate president Bush’s view of his own office. He believes he has had his one accountability moment in power: it was the last election. As we have seen from his refusal to acknowledge his own out-of-control spending or abrogation of settled American law against abusing military detainees, he really does believe he is above the usual sense of accountability. That’s why conservatives who think that it’s a smart thing to criticize him now, rather than before the election, are fooling themselves. This guy will do what he wants. If he wants to pick a close friend and flunky, whatever her virtues, as a Supreme Court Justice, passing over dozens of other brilliant legal minds and more experienced jurists more acceptable to his base, that’s what he’ll do. And that’s what he’s done.

From Right Wing News:

Disaster, Thy Name Is Harriet Miers

George Bush’s decision to appoint Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court is bitterly disappointing. Miers is a Bush crony with no real conservative credentials, who leapfrogged legions of more deserving judges just because she was Bush’s pal…. To merely describe Miers as a terrible pick is to underestimate her sheer awfulness as a selection.

From Redstate, via Andrew Sullivan:

Bush lied to us. Let Kos cheer. The post below should not get lost, that her name was on a list of acceptables supplied by the Democrats. Bush is a gutless, abortionist liar. I spit on him. Seriously.

And more:

I cannot believe that I ever trusted this man. I am such a fool. I cannot believe that I have been so foolish as to look past the open borders, the excessive spending, the support of moderate Senators over Conservatives, the nation building in Iraq, the twisted bankruptcy “reform,” etc.

My favorite:

could have picked a real conservative. instead, he picks a 60-year-old woman who’s never been married and has never had kids. are we really to believe that she’ll vote to overturn roe? are we to believe that this woman hasn’t had sex outside of marriage over the past several decades? and if she has, hasn’t she been counting on the right to abortion just as other career-oriented women do? bush has betrayed us. i will never again contribute to the republican party.

Ah! So many people are abandoning the two parties in response to this pick. Isn’t that interesting?

But we have finally reached a moment of supreme (heh) bipartisanship. We all agree Bush is a hopeless idiot and cannot be trusted. Now, what to do about this judge?
