Miers Lacks Gift of Gab, Competence, Say Senators

Ever fill out one of those lengthy questionnaires for, say, auto insurance or White House security clearance? You know how boring and pedantic they can be, right? How much information they want. "Have you ever been arrested for DUI outside of Dupont Circle?" "Do you promise not to dish on secret government agents and stuff?" Blah blah fucking blah. Yeah, well, try wriggling your way onto the Supreme Court sometime. Honey, you ain't seen exacting 'til you've done that.


Barely concealing their irritation during a 35-minute news conference at the Capitol, Chairman Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) and ranking Democrat Patrick J. Leahy (Vt.) called the lobbying on Miers's behalf "chaotic," and said the answers she provided Monday to a lengthy questionnaire were inadequate. "The comments I have heard range from incomplete to insulting," Leahy said.

That's right: "Insulting." Apparently, it's unwise to answer a question pertaining to the constitutional logic behind Lawrence v. Texas with, "Shit, boy, only steers n' queers come from Texas, and you sure don't look like no steer t'me." Who knew.

Before we get all het up about Donald Trump's press conference with Vladimir Putin, Tucker Carlson says, we need to look at the larger perspective. Maybe Russia hacked us, maybe they didn't, but what about how Mexicans have interfered in our elections for decades just by being born here, huh?

Have you been enjoying the last 24 hours of the mainstream media suddenly realizing there's a Russian intelligence asset in the White House, which is something we at Wonkette have known since October of 2016? Hilarious, right? Anyway, DOJ just found another Russian spy in its big "witch hunt." Her name is Maria Butina and she was arrested on Sunday, because the feds were pretty sure she was about to run. Now she is being held in federal custody without bond.

Butina, who is being called a Russian gun rights activist in the news reels, has been indicted for being a total fucking Russian spy who secretly worked to infiltrate the NRA and use it to create secret back channels between the Kremlin and the Republican party. WITCH HUNT!

Keep one idea in your head during this post, please: There is no such thing as a Russian gun rights activist, at least not in the way that we know it. They do not have a "second amendment" in Russia. It is not a gun culture. And Vladimir Putin's political party certainly isn't trying to Samantha Stephens one into existence! So it would follow that if a "Russian gun nut" is up the NRA's ass trying to create back channels, she is actually just a Russian spy who probably isn't even that good at guns.
