Harriet, Katie, and the baby

This was going to be a really serious post about the problems with Harriet Meirs and why neither Democrats or Republicans should vote for the confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice whose only two big decisions in life so far have been to become an evangelical Christian and to follow George Bush around. I was going to write about how conservatives should stop acting like they're owed a Supreme Court Justice and progressives should remember that the enemy you don't know is always scarier than the one you do.

But then I read that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are having a baby and that she's "never felt better." What woman, during the first trimester, says she "never felt better?" The second trimester, sure, but during the first three months? Unless of course, it's an alien baby. I hear those trigger different hormones.

I'm wondering what's going on. Am I the only one who sees the eerie connection between the way Katie Holmes follows Tom Cruise around, repeating everything he says, and the way Harriet Meirs follows George W. Bush around, becoming his talking robot on the Supreme Court?

Would somebody please stop the madness before we're stuck with it for the rest of our natual lives?
