News-Ruse hereby endorses former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin to fill the next vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.
We at News-Ruse know that Palin is not a lawyer but the Supreme Court already has lawyers. Look at Clarence Thomas. We believe he is a lawyer, although since he doesn’t talk it is hard to be sure.
Anyway, anybody can become a lawyer. Palin could attend night school and get a damn law degree. More important, we need someone in that job with international exposure, which she has had in spades, being that she was within sight of the Russian border for so long, plus the intellectual chops to hand down big decisions on important national issues.
Look, this is a lady who reads dozens of newspapers and magazines without even knowing which ones they are. Try that sometime.
Consider, too, the vast public benefit of not having to hear her speeches before adoring groups anymore, with sound bites on the evening news like “So how’s that health reform thing-y going for you, President Obama?” Putting her on the Supreme court would not only shut her up, it would add a fun wild card to the national debates on vital issues affecting all Americans, putting America at the forefront of clown-led government, its rightful place in today’s world.
