IT'S NOT LIKE THEY DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS COMING:

Big push for judge surprises liberals (Joseph Curl and James G. Lakely, July 22, 2005, THE WASHINGTON TIMES)

The White House's heavily orchestrated campaign to quickly define Supreme Court nominee John G. Roberts Jr. to America and the U.S. Senate -- using the Republican Party's top strategist and a well-respected former senator -- has left Democrats and liberal groups flat-footed.

Even before President Bush wielded the hefty power of the presidency by making a prime-time, nationally televised announcement, Karl Rove was working the phones. Mr. Bush's top political adviser called such key conservative leaders as C. Boyden Gray, former Attorney General Edwin Meese III of the Heritage Foundation and Leonard Leo, the executive vice president of the Federalist Society and the head of Catholic outreach for the Republican Party.

Meanwhile, former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie -- working out of the West Wing office granted to him to manage Mr. Bush's Supreme Court confirmation battle -- put into action a complex plan to win the early public relations battle to define Judge Roberts, on Capitol Hill and beyond.

Doesn't this make it even more important to run Buh's Brain out of town. After all, Chimpy McHitler is too stupid to think this stuff up by himself.

And just wait until the next justice is nominated. The calm, mature, measured presentation of Edith Jones, Janice Rogers Brown, Miguel Estrada, or Emilio Garza will contrast quite nicely with the shrill insanity on the left. Ted Kennedy just doesn't have it anymore.

Robert, don't forget, the proper appellation is Chimpy BloodMcBushHitlerGoldstein.

When was it changed from monkeybushitlerhalliburton? My darn fax isn't working, so I didn't get the memo from the RNC about the name change. Will somebody please forward it to me.

I read a new one today: "Bushiban". I also discovered that we now live in a fascist Bush dictatorship. "Shrubco uber alles".

The Administration often neglects PR to its detriment. But when it does focus, it is a thing of beauty. The finest political operation of modern times.

I thought "Chimpy McHallibushitler" covered all bases nicely.

The Democrats continue to misunderestimate him, to the nation's benefit.
