Now we have a number

Conservative activists have rounded up signatures from about 122,000 people who think President Bush should nominate former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, who lost his job in 2003 after disobeying a federal court order, to the U.S. Supreme Court. The fact that pretty much anyone would be nominated sooner than Moore hasn't deterred the activists; as one said, "Whatever his prospects may be, Roy Moore personifies the standard against which other prospective nominees ought to be measured."

One hundred twenty-two thousand people.

I think Bush is wrapped up in deciding how he is going to promote Karl Rove.

Tenet screwed up the intell, he got the medal of freedom; Condi screwed up the 911 warnings - now she's running Foggy Bottom. Stephen P. Hadley allowed the Niger talk in the 2003 state of the union, now he's national security adviser instead of deputy nat'l security adviser.

Chief Justice Karl Rove?

(All that was stolen from the Daily Show).

A bit of optimism -- that's not a lot compared to the total population of the USA. These people, despite their loud voices, are a minority.

Apparently Alan Keyes has jumped on the Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore bandwagon!
