Reality TV

Will Americans pay more attention to this Supreme Court nominee just because it is done in prime time?

(Maybe Bush will introduce five candidates and have them do various competitions -- overturning unfavorable social precedent, deciding Presidential elections, protecting big business -- eliminating one each week,culminating in a Labor Day prime time special, where the two remaining potential nominees face off against each other in a contest to see who can overturn Roe the quickest.)

Seriously though, a prime time announcement does do two things -- it allows the administration to present the nominee in the light most favorable, and it will help to draw attention away from Karl Rove.

And, just for the record, I have predicted that Edith Jones will be the nominee.
