I Went to Catholic School, Therefore I'm an Expert on the Catholic Faith

For most rational people, that makes about as much sense as saying you can perform brain surgery because you stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night. As pointed out at the Roman Catholic Blog, though, senselessness never stopped folks like Margaret Carlson from spewing ignorance out of their word processing pie-holes because it neatly fits into their secular political agenda.
My Firm Has Designated Me As Its' Family Law Attorney

That kind of thing happens when you work for a small firm that does just about everything. Lord help me. Anyone know where I can get a print of St. Thomas More to hang in my office?

Still Not Convinced

Ann Coulter is sticking to her guns with regard to her belief that John Roberts could be another David Souter.

Like John Roberts, Souter attended church regularly. Souter was also touted for his great intellect. He went to Harvard! And Harvard Law! (Since when does that impress right-wingers? So did Larry Tribe. It is one of the eternal mysteries of the world that liberals are good test-takers.)

At least when Souter was nominated, we needed a stealth nominee. The Senate was majority Democrat back then. The Judiciary Committee consisted of eight Democrats and six Republicans — two of whom were aggressively pro-abortion. A year later, faced with the same Democratic Senate, the current president's father nominated Clarence Thomas. Who would have thought the current Bush would be less macho than his father?

Roberts would have been a fine candidate for a Senate in Democratic hands. But now we have 55 Republican seats in the Senate and the vice president to cast a deciding vote — and Son of Read-My-Lips gives us another ideological blind date.


Republicans are desperately trying to convince themselves that Roberts will be different because they want to believe Bush wouldn't let us down on the Supreme Court. Somewhere in America a woman is desperately trying to convince herself that her husband won't hit her again because he told her "things are going to be different this time." (And yes, that woman's name is Whitney Houston.)
I Hate In Pro Pers

They just delay things longer than they need to be, and they can just be downright unreasonable to their own detriment. As much as you may dislike us folks, if you ever find yourself in a lawsuit (whether as a defendant or plaintiff)and it's possible for you to hire a lawyer, hire one.

Madame Seems to be More Appropriate

A 40 year old woman who held sex parties for teen-aged boys pleads guilty to charges of sexual assault and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. (via Drudge)

My guess is that if it was possible for this woman to be a priest, there'd be more coverage of this horrific story in the MSM. Of course, as this report clearly shows, not being able to be a Catholic priest doesn't mean you can't delusionally proclaim yourself as one.
