She had to do it though. I feel bad for her - she was really put through the ringer. More than that though, because Bush wasn't the one to withdraw his choice, he doesn't directly get to eat as much crow as I think he should.

Why do people continue to take bullets for this loser? At any rate, at least for now the status quo is maintained.

"Court" would have been fewer letters and more transparent than SCOTUS.

The abbreviation POTUS makes me think of potatos, but SCOTUS reminds me of "scrotum". :P

...but absent context, less specific.

EDIT: Furthermore, TM, I would figure you of all people would have appreciated the term for the reason Aran outlined.

*snort* Me too. And it reminds me of Scotland.
It's really too bad that the initials of the Supreme Court are SC. It makes my US History notes that much longer, because I can't abbreviate it... lest I confuse it with South Carolina. :D

I much prefer the initials POT USA. It is certainly appropriate for recent holders of the office -- even though some of them didn't inhale.

...which leads me to go really off-topic and wonder what ever did happen to the Presidents of the USA.

Brings out various conspiracy theories about how the nomination was a smoke screen for other activities of the administration. Not from me, though--I'm still sitting here, thinking, "Huh."
