No Justice Left Behind
Why is it that every child in our public school system has to undergo rigorous standardized testing in order to hold the school districts "accountable". But our Supreme Court nominee gets a do-over. It wouldn't be allowed under "No Child Left Behind" so it shouldn't be allowed for the highest court in the land.
If Harriet Miers needs to fill out her questionnaire again - she should be forced to sit in a hard plastic chair in an un-ventilated classroom - after a meal of corn dogs and chocolate milk. She should get one number two pencil and have one hour to complete it. Then we will see if she is fit for the supreme court.
Left-over but not left-out
