Bush: "Confirm Miers because she's religious"

Unbelievable. Is there no limit to George Bush's uncanny knack for saying stupid things and pissing people off? Here's the latest:

"People are interested to know why I picked Harriet Miers. They want to know Harriet Miers' background. They want to know as much as they possibly can before they form opinions. Part of Harriet Miers' life is her religion."

As Barry Lynn, director of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, pointed out, anyone who tried to bring up the topic of religion during the Roberts confirmation was labeled a bigot. "Now Bush and Rove are touting where Miers goes to church and using that as a selling point,'' Lynn said. "The hypocrisy is staggering.''

Staggering indeed.

Republicans are the biggest hypocrites in the political arena. I don't even know why they are given a fair shake, given their mounds upon mounds of fuck-ups.
