What brought down Martha Stewart? $40,000? I don't remember.
First Scooter and Turd blossom, maybe Dick, now Harriet Miers' $26.000 problem. Such arrogance....
The land in question is near my mother's home, I know it well. "Vacant lot of weeds" would be a overly flowerly way to describe it. There's no argument to be made for it being valuable. I can't imagine it even being worth the $2/sqft they reached in mediation. It's a windfall at that price!
Now I understand why she's so fond of GWBush. They're cut from the same crooked, lying, entitled-class, cloth. I'm sure they see the world the same way. He's appointed her to the court because he thinks he's going to need friends as high as possible in the judicial system in the near future.
He's probably right about that. This is what he does best, he calls it "political cover."
