Harriet Miers for Supreme Court Justice-What a Fool Believes

Harriet Miers, the woman whom the president called a "pit bull in size six shoes", must be making low growling sounds at the senators as she makes her rounds on the hill. First she met with Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter , a Republican from Pennsylvania whom we know to be very precise.On Monday Specterb said Miers told him she believes there is a right to privacy in the U.S. Constitution, an underpinning of a woman's right to have an abortion, and that two key privacy cases were rightly decided -- which he considered to be significant factors in determining her judicial philosophy.

A few hours after reports of what Spector thought the conversation was about made it back to Miers and her White House handlers the senator's office spokesman William Reynolds issued this email clarification:
    "In their meeting this afternoon, Sen. Specter thought Ms. Harriet Miers said she agreed with Griswold v. Connecticut and there was a right to privacy in the Constitution.(She says it's in the "Liberty Clause".) After Sen. Specter commented on that to the news media, Ms. Miers called him to say that he misunderstood her, and that she had not taken a position on Griswold or the privacy issue. Sen. Specter accepts Ms. Miers' statement that he misunderstood what she said."

Republicans are divided. Among party conservatives this division has supporters, friends, former colleagues all giving conflicting interpretations of what Harriet believes. The president and the vice president have spoken in complete support of Miers judicial philosophy, whatever that is(??). This is very difficult to do since there is no record of what Harriet believes. Many conservatives in the party question her qualifications. They say she has not indicated she is clearly conservative. In other words Harriet doesn't have papers to support her positions, like the new Chief Justice John Roberts.

There is one thing on which senators in both parties agree. Whatever Harriet Miers says during her confirmation hearing is of the utmost importance because she has no record to speak of.

Didn't I Already Say We'll Always Have Paris?

Paris Hilton in the news again.
    Firstly, Paris Hilton says her television program with ex-best friend Nicole Richie isn't over yet. Last week Fox dropped "The Simple Life" from it's fall line up of shows. This week Ms HIlton says, "We're shooting November 1. All the networks are fighting over it." In the spring of this year Hilton announced that she and Richie had a break in their friendship. Neither she nor socialite Nicole Richie have disclosed the reason for the dispute.
    Secondly, according to a news release submitted by Vivid Entertainment, Paris Hilton is the subject of a DVD interview given by troubled actor Tom Sizemore. As you may recall Sizemore acted in the films "Saving Private Ryan", "Natural Born Killers" and "Black Hawk Down". However the smart money says he'll become best known for "The Tom Sizemore Sex Scandal" DVD interview, during which he reveals he once slept with Paris Hilton.

    Vivid Entertainment, an adult film studio, is releasing a DVD comprising over 70 minutes of uncut and uncensored video of Sizemore having sex with up to four young women at a time. Included with the DVD is a candid audio interview in which Sizemore talks about his early admiration for his ex-girlfriend former "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss and a night of raw sex with Paris Hilton in 2001.

Tom Sizemore background information:
    Tom Sizemore reveals that he has been suffering from massive depression and fighting legal proceedings. In 2004 he was tried and convicted of battering and making harassing calls to former girlfriend Fleiss. He was also found guilty of being under the influence and in possession of crystal methamphetamine, which he claims he was taking to relieve his depression. He was ordered to an inpatient drug rehab clinic in Los Angeles County. On Monday, October 17th, he was placed on probation for three years by the court.
    Sizemore is a self-proclaimed sex addict who says he has a condition known as priapism, which causes an involuntary prolonged erection allowing him to perform intercourse for unusually long periods of time.
