Breaking news

OMG! I just got a high-priority e-mail message -- two copies of it, actually -- and it's a doozy. Jumpin' Jehosophat, put down your grande iced chai, hold on to your Aeron chair, and now hear this:

Kevin Mannix supports President Bush's nominee for the Supreme Court.

Stop the presses!

(Time to adjust my spam filter...)

I saw that little cheeser on the news being interviewed about an hour after the announcement acting as if he was very well acquainted with the nominee's jurisprudence, when he must have been following Robert's career for about 40 minutes total.

So Mannix gets on the 6:30 News hoping that Oregon GOP members will conclude he is some sort of insider with the Bush Administration with an expert analysis of legal qualifications.

...just the bare implication that maybe the Administration consulted him on this decision...

What a crock!

If the Oregon GOP falls for his song and dance and nominate him again they really deserve to lose.

Kevin ever get a JOB? A real job?


Too bad. Times are tough, I guess.

I figure he must have an "in" with the local news rooms. How is it that every time there is even a little bit of political news, he ends up on the tube. Doesn't matter whether or not it's the Oregon Legislature, Bushie business, or the boxing match for Washington Governor, he always has a friggin opinion like anyone here really cares what the guy has to say...

Kevin is one of these guys who constantly decries "big government" and "career politicians," but cannot keep himself from running for every elective office in the state.

Reminds me of my favorite P.J. O'Rourke line:

"Republicans are the party that says government doesn't work, and then they get elected and prove it."
