"she assured the President that she would live until she was 90. All we have to do is trust him and all will be well!"
The fact is that 60 is old. It is a strike against her. If Bush were really trying to use his nomination wisely, he would pick the youngest "Scalia or Thomas" he could find.
Bush did not pick the youngest "Scalia or Thomas" he could find.
Bush did not use his pick wisely.
No one even knows if Bush picked a "Scalia or Thomas" like he promised.
Even if he did, she is still a crony and he should have picked someone else.
This pick is just lame. A total waste.
In any case, I have it on very good authority (Harriet Mier's gardener's second cousin's veterinarian, that she has always planned to live to at least 90 and that, instead of watching Desparate Housewives, Harriet bones up on originalism. And she's even heard of Justice Scalia!!!!
The fact is, that's not a fact at all! It all depends on the person in question.
IMHO, 60 is quite young. I'm quite younger than that myself, but my parents are quite older than that, not to mention my Aunt, all of whom are currently enjoying the latest of their "world travels" (an excursion that would make me quite tired out, but doesn't phase them in the least...and my Uncle is home working, LOL!)
Just so you know that, "whippersnapper"!! ;)
