Sorry- I am just tired of this shit. Democrats claim they never fight tough enough- that Republicans are mean and play dirty and Democrats are nice. Bullshit. Let them fool themselves, but don’t let them fool you. While moderate Democrats can pretend the rhetorical excesses of the loony left and the base of the party do not exist, they simply are living in a fantasyland. From the mindset that brought you the James Byrd dragging commercials, the DNC now proudly presents the latest in their line of fear appeals:
This charming flash macromedia cartoon is Bush creating his perfect Supreme Court Justice, a la Frankenstein. Here is the text for those of you without Flashplayers:
Aide: What is it Mr. President?
President Bush: I am creating the perfect Supreme Court Justice. A right wing extremist the likes of which have never been seen before. My justice will have the vision of Charles Pickering, the teeth of Priscilla Owen, the secrets of Miguel Estrada, the arms of Clarence Thomas, and the brain of Antonin Scalia.
Aide: And the heart?
President Bush: Heart? We don’t need no heart! We have everything we need. The Switch!
(The Bushenstein is brought to life and then shown, later that night attacking the Supreme Court building.)-
Bushenstein: Civil Liberties Bad!!!! Worker Protection!! Choice!! Environmental Protection!! Public Education Bad!!!
Voiceover: Don’t let George Bush reconstruct the Supreme Court. Let’s make sure the next justice has American vlaues, not right-wing values. Get involved now.
Those timid Democrats. Always picked upon. Next time they try to peddle their crap, tell them where to stick it.
