West Wing Episode Predicts Miers/Rove/Dobson Fiasco
POSTED ON 10/10/2005 | PERMALINK |4 Comments | BOOKMARK
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter said he wants to know whether presidential adviser Karl Rove privately assured a conservative activist of how Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers would rule on the court.

Specter, a Pennsylvania Republican, said he will would look into a statement by James Dobson, president of the Colorado Springs, Colorado-based advocacy group Focus on the Family, that Dobson has had ``conversations'' with Rove about the woman nominated to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor and knows things about Miers ``that I probably shouldn't know.''
This whole scenario is strangely similar to last night's episode of The West Wing, in which a religious leader is promised an anti-choice judge--off the record--by a republican presidential candidate. The religious leader than leaks the information and the candidate denies he made the promise.

Is this Bush Administration that predictable? Yes. Yes it is.

I've had this secret fantasy for awhile that I'd go to sleep and when I woke up I'd find The West Wing was actually real.

This wasn't quite what I had in mind...

Wow! Now if only we could get some of the press to ask tough questions like in the West Wing!
