Furor over Mier's Nomination Continues...

In this CNN article, More Controversy over Miers, I found this delightful quote from John Hill Jr., "a Democrat who was chief justice of the Texas Supreme Court from 1985 to 1988 and served with Miers on the Texas Lottery Commission."

"We actually know Harriet Miers; I hope that still counts for something, somewhere," Hill said. "I'd trust her with my wife and my life."

What?

Hey Meli - this is Kelly L. I hadn't read your political blog before today (it's awesome, by the way) but I stumbled across a CNN.com article this morning that I thought was interestingly horrible:

http://edition.cnn.com/2005/WORLD
/meast/11/29/uae.gay.reut/index.html

Quick sum up - DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (Reuters) -- Men arrested at what a United Arab Emirates official said appeared to be a gay wedding are to be given hormone therapy, officials said on Tuesday.

The U.S. State Department condemned the forced medical treatment of gay couples in the Muslim Gulf Arab state and called on the UAE to comply with international legal standards.

Police raided a hotel earlier this month where 26 homosexuals of Asian, Arab and UAE origin were at a party. At least 12 were dressed in women's clothes and wearing makeup at what an official said appeared to be a wedding celebration.

Colonel Najm al-Sayar told Reuters the foreigners were likely to be deported while the locals, who are being held in the capital Abu Dhabi, would undergo hormonal therapy -- most likely induced testosterone.


This is just one of the sickest things I've ever heard of. I know that there are many atrocities in every country, I know the Nazis conducted horrible experiments, genocide in Rwanda, etc etc. But this is 2005! Fifty years ago people thought this would be the ultimate space age! And what the hell is going on? What are science's progresses being turned into? A form of punishment? You can't medically make someone straight. Or make a gay person straight by any means, for that matter. Not that you should! I just am at a loss for words. Ugh, this infuritates me to no end. #^&$*$#!@#$%^&*!!!

That is all.
