The Lady Speaks

Well, duh!

This would be funny, except for the fact that nearly every one of The Decider's….Halfwit MonkeyBoy's….the President's nominees have turned out to be unqualified and incompetent, most after doing their jobs so badly that people died or entire cities were destroyed 

Being unqualified and incompetent is worth bonus points when the administration looks for someone to fill a position. Why get someone who knows what they're doing when you can get someone who a) looks good, b) loves the Prez, or c) will do whatever they're told and will never question anything done/said by the administration.

From the Associated Press:

The American Bar Association rated one of President Bush's judicial nominees "not qualified" Wednesday, prompting a call from a liberal group for the president to withdraw the Mississippi lawyer's nomination.

A panel of the nation's largest lawyers group unanimously agreed that Michael Wallace, nominated for the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, should receive its lowest rating.

Wallace has never served as a judge. If confirmed to the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit, he would handle appeals from federal courts in Mississippi, Texas and Louisiana.

"Wallace is the first appeals court nominee in 25 years to receive a unanimous 'not qualified' rating from the ABA. The president should immediately withdraw his nomination," said Ralph Neas, president of the liberal group People For the American Way.

An unanimous "not qualified" rating is rare from the ABA, which has graded judicial candidates since the 1950s on three factors: integrity, professional competence and judicial temperament.

Poor ratings on judicial nominees were avoided by previous presidents who submitted the names of prospective judicial candidates to the ABA for screening before nominations were made. President Bush abandoned the practice when he took office in 2001.

ABA leaders have been asked to testify during Senate confirmation hearings in the past when they find that a judge nominee is not qualified. [emphasis mine]

Integrity, professional competence, and judicial temperament…

Is there anyone not surprised to discover that 'Listens to Jeebus'….El Commandante….the President doesn't really care if his nominees are qualified?
