don't it make my red eyes blue

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 11, 2004

The People's Daily (China) has an editorial with the intriguing title " Bush Faces 9 Big Challenges in his New Tenure of Office." Where, I wondered, will the organ of a Communist nation with compulsory state-enforced abortion and sterilization rank these issues on Bush's agenda? Nowhere. The "Ninth Challenge," however, delicately touches on the government apparatus germane to the problem:

In the power-framework of the US political system, the Supreme Court has a very big power. At the beginning of Bush's 2nd terms of office, several grand justices of the Conservative party in the Supreme Court are likely to retire. Bush has to find out some suitable ones to replace them, for these grand justices of the Conservative party are mostly the supporters for Bush administration. In addition, Bush must also find out an attorney to represent the government. Whereas before this the Chief Justice of the government has already resigned from his post and went to take up a more profitable job in a private sector.

The English is a little wobbly, but the party line comes through clear enough, eh Maureen?
