Here Comes The Wannabe Judge

I can only wonder what Bush was thinking when he proposed his personal lawyer and White House Deputy be a Supreme Court justice. Is this guy really such an idiot that he'd just imagine this was gonna fly? Or is this some deeper darker far more evolved plot machinated by the handlers of the nation's all powerful village idiot.

Harriet Miers
Harriett Miers
White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy

Maybe God just told him it was the "right thing" to do. Apparently Bush gets a lot of help from the heavens according to those in the prez' privy.

Recently the New York Times was able to get ahold of documents created by Harriett Miers and some of them are pretty darn neat. One of her letters from 1997 goes as far as to say of Bush:

"You are the best governor ever — deserving of great respect,"

She goes on to refer to him as "cool" and that W and wife Laura, were "the greatest!"

The whole accolade laden romance doesn't end there, with gleefully grinning Bush on the Today show this morning talking about his personal lawyer as "She is brilliant...she won't change." While the newly recruited Laura chimes in: "She really is wonderful." Liberated Laura has also been quoted saying that the reason people have opposed Miers as a Justice is "sexism".

She seems a bit like Dana Carvey's "church lady" character on Saturday Night Live, but maybe with a lil more of a ghoulish eye-liner heavy appearance and a Texas sized ego.

Here read some of her trite pre 2004 election cheerleading for the Prez in a bizarre and folksy Dear White House Q&A from the official White House website. She concludes here happy go lucky spiels in homespun ways with things like"
May God bless you and yours, may he protect our servicemen and women, and may God continue to bless this great country of ours." and the closer "Hearing from Americans across the country is inspiring and interesting. I hope everyone has a great weekend.....and don't forget to reset your clocks Saturday night - Harriett"

You know it's bad when even conservative icon Judge Bork, The prez' dad's fabulously failed past nominee, refers to Miers nomination a "disaster on every level." Even typical administration apologists are backing away from Bush & Miers, with media centric conservative movement mouthpiece Ann Coulter saying Bush displays "stunning arrogance" with his suggestion lil' 'ol Harriett is ready to serve on the nation's highest constituitional interpretitive body.

Several media outlets & websites are at least beginning to peel her the onion layers of loyal service to Bush's campaigns over the years which includes helping to deflect criticism of his AWOL time in the National Guard , and her cozy appointment to the scandal-plagued Texas Lottery Commission. Apparently her first duty to Bush that helped him "know her heart" was her fixing of a lawsuit filed by a disgruntled & dismissed elderly care taker of GW & pals East Texas "Rainbo Club" fishing cabins in 1994.

eeeek...enough nominee golly gee & juicy judiciary blather, maybe working at a law school is starting to rub off on me...

so now party with ol Harriett now , right click and grab some music y'all...

Shorty Long was signed to Motown in 1963 after a stint at Harvey Fuqua's Tri-Phi/Harvey label, he wrote Devil With The Blue Dress, Function at the Junction but was lost in the Hitsville USA shuffle. He eventually released his biggest hit "Here Comes The Judge" which hit #4 on the R&B charts in 1968. Shorty's career was cut short in 1969, at just age 29, due to a fatal boating accident.

Shorty Long - "Here Comes The Judge"

some of the lyrics:

Hear ye, hear ye
The court's in session
The court's in session, now
Here comes the judge

Stop eatin' that fudge
Cause here comes the judge
Don't nobody buzz
Cause here comes the judge
Judge Shorty is presidin' today
And he don't take no stuff from nobody
No kind of way Hey boy, take off that hat
Where do you think you're at
I know where you gon' be
If you don't heed my plea
I'm here to tell you
Court's in session
Order in the court now
Court's in session
Can't nobody smoke now
Here comes the judge

Y'all here comes the judge
Order, order
What's the first case on the docket
Judge I got a boy here who can't dance
Can't dance? Ah
Ninety days, thirty days for boogaloo
Thirty days to learn how to shing-a-ling
And thirty more for the Afro twist
Can't dance, what is this
Court's in session everybody quiet now
Court's in session, here comes the judge
Here comes the judge

Is that the man?
No, your honor
Does he look like the man?
No, your Honor
Well, I'm sorry you got to go now
Ah ha you can't recognize the man
You got to stand guilty
Here comes the judge
Here comes the judge
Here comes the judge
Ah yes, here comes the judge
They caught him stompin' down the aisle
Yes here comes the judge
I'd rather be lost in the jungle of Brazil
Than to face the judge
This morning the way he feels
Here comes the judge
Here comes the judge boy

Of course if we're gonna ride the judgement train, how about visiting our dead friend...

From his 1996 'All Eyez On Me" album, the most prolific and successful deceased rapper of all time...

Tupac Shakur - "Only God Can Judge Me Now"

sample lyrics:

(Heart monitor flatlines... beeps )
Only God baby, nobody else, nobody else
All you other motherfuckers get out my business

Perhaps I was blind to the facts, stabbed in the back
I couldn't trust my own homies just a bunch a dirty rats
Will I, succeed, paranoid from the weed
And hocus pocus try to focus but I can't see
And in my mind I'ma blind man doin time
Look to my future cause my past, is all behind me
Is it a crime, to fight, for what is mine?
Everybody's dyin tell me what's the use of tryin
I've been Trapped since birth, cautious, cause I'm cursed
And fantasies of my family, in a hearse
And they say it's the white man I should fear
But, it's my own kind doin all the killin here
I can't lie, ain't no love for the other side
Jealousy inside, make em wish I died
Oh my Lord, tell me what I'm livin for
Everybody's droppin got me knockin on heaven's door
And all my memories, of seein brothers bleed
And everybody grieves, but still nobody sees
Recollect your thoughts don't get caught up in the mix
Cause the media is full of dirty tricks
Only God can judge me

[Chorus: 2Pac]

[synth voice] Only God can judge me
That's right baby, yeah baby
[synth voice] Only God

Play' Boy is a rapper out of Nashville Tn, who is not content to lie low while his town holds onto it's "HQ of Country Music USA" reputation. The city's burgeoning underground rap scene thrives and this spiteful spittin' track is from a 2004 release ...

Gordy Boy was one of the better Mash Up DJ's to emerge over the past three years in the U.K. He's recently announced his retirement from that scene but here's one of his audio workouts that's still posted through December when his web hosting will likely end.
