Evil thoughts inspired by the Roberts hearings

As the day when the nigh-inevitable confirmation of John Roberts as our nation's Chief Justice, more and more speculation is swirling around who President Bush will nominate to take the Associate Justice seat being vacated by Sandra Day O'Connor. I've been giving it some thought, myself.

I'm no lawyer. I'm not even an amateur legal scholar. I have no real knowledge of our current "bench bench" of sitting judges, their merits and their flaws. So I'm going to look away from the judiciary for a worthy successor to Justice O'Connor -- and I think I have one.

To honor Justice O'Connor's historic role as the first woman on the High Court, my nominee is also a woman. She's also an accomplished lawyer, a graduate of Cornell and the University of Michigan Law School. She was a practicing lawyer for years, before becoming a legislative staffer -- even working for the very Judiciary Committee that she would face as a nominee.

And imagine the ratings for the live television coverage when Ted Kennedy, Joe Biden, Charles Schumer, and the like have to face Supreme Court Associate Justice Nominee Ann Coulter?

Once she's done savaging them, face-to-face, on national television, Bush could nominate Robert Bork, Pee Wee Herman, or even Richard Nixon's decaying corpse in her stead and they would fly through without a second glance.

Because if they don't approve this nominee, there's always Laura Ingraham waiting in the wings...

Damn, and I thought my suggestion of Karl Rove was the most evillest one possible.

And instead of spending money on the hearings, you could make money. What would a ticket to see Ann Coulter savage Ted Kennedy go for?

Yes, just imagine the ratings for a show where Ted Keneddy was asked to explain his conduct and actions while standing on a bridge near Chappaquiddick all those years ago in http://anncoulter.com/cgi-local/article.cgi?article=73 if he asked the nominee to explain her judicial reasons for the withholding of attorney/client communications!

fatman, she's also got the "pretty girl" photogenic thingy going for her...Senator D-Chivas won't have a chance.

Not to mention Pelosi and Boxer self-destructing on camera.

Hell yes, I'd pay to see that.

Steve L.:

I think fatman's right. PPV would bring in BIG money. Unfortunately, it would probably be like many regular PPV fights. The referee would have to stop the fight to keep Biden, Kennedy or Schumer from being hurt too badly.

I would seriously take time off work to watch that confirmation hearing!

One question - will the spectators (and Democrat senators) be checked for hidden pies in addition to the regular weapons checks?

Ann Coulter, with her sharp tongue and rapier wit to pop the gasbags -- what an inspired choice!

"Republican presidents need... (Below threshold)

"Republican presidents need to start sending at least one Potemkin nominee to the Senate for confirmation hearings. If there were just one cabinet nominee willing to sacrifice his appointment for the opportunity to yell back at that adulterous drunk, Senator Teddy Kennedy might not be so cavalier before launching his premeditated vituperations...Heck, I'll volunteer for this mission myself -- if only for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to say, on C-SPAN, "We'll drive off the side of that bridge when we come to it, Senator Kennedy." - Ann Coulter

I think she would jump at the chance.

An inspired idea!

Either Coulter or Ingraham would be worth skipping work to watch them eviscerate the gas bags in the Senate Judiciary Committee Room!

Actually just doing a roll call every time a question is asked right now would be hilarious.

Ann or Laura vs. gaseous, poser, intellectually challenged Senators-- entertainment in the Capital!

Jay Tea, that is PURE genius!

I am fortunate to have the opportunity to see Ms. Coulter tomorrow night (17Sep) in Orlando. I am printing out a copy of this, and I hope and PRAY I will be able to give it to her.

I just about died laughing (evilly, of course) at the image of Kennedy, Schumer, and Biden attempting to deflect the sharp and accurate jabs of Ann's acid tongue.

Romeocat, wishing you success in passing on your printout. Say hi from all her fans at Wizbang :)

(My guess is that she would not want to be tied down to a lifetime appointment... (yet) - but just the contemplation of such confirmation hearings is delicious!)

I thought you said you were going to nominate a woman.
