    Washington --- President Bush surprised observers today with his announcement that Clinton White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers was his pick for the Supreme Court. Myers, who is not a lawyer or even a Republican, struck many as an odd choice. Some thought Bush just got confused. But he spoke warmly of Myers.

    "She's a real great gal. She's just been hanging around Washington with nothing to do, ever since the other president left office. I felt bad. So I nominated her."

    What is so astute about it?

    Does Dee dee Myers even have a law degree?

    If so, she has not practised law for 15 years
    or so, while Harriet Miers has been for close
    to 40 years.

    Uh, I read about this in the AJC this morning. No legal or judging experience? Is she the next "Brownie?"

    I think Joyce's point is that when you're making important decisions like that you don't just appoint someone because they're your friend and you like them. I don't usually agree with him but this time I do and he did it in a funny way.

    And the people who voted for Bush have absolutely NO idea where she stands on issues. He's already disappointed me with poor decisions. Why should I just trust him on this one?
