GREAT DO-OVERS IN HISTORY

Well by now you probably know that I have to "take a mulligan" on my questionnaire. Well my answer is bring it on!! Its like I've always said. There's no shame in getting something wrong the first time, the only shame is giving up!!! I may not get a Hole In One but a birdy is pretty good I'd say!

With that in mind, I made this list of great do-overs from history to cheer me up. Maybe it will cheer you up too!!

XOX HARRIET
  • The first pyramid was TOO SMALL. Did the Egyptions give up. No! They went ahead and made another one, plus a sphinx!!
  • Richard Nixon wasn't elected president the first time he ran. Either did President George HW Bush. But you know what they had in common. They took a mulligan and won!!!
  • Here's one thats particularly relevant to me: Dred Scott Decision. Alot of people dont realize but sometimes the Supreme Court makes a mistake, I've been reading about it, and then they can go back and overturn it. Just like my questionnaire!!
  • As my friends know, I'm not just a golf lover I'm also a bowler. Well bowling is the perfect example... even if you get a gutter ball the first time, you still have another ball in the frame and you can get a spare!
And needless to say, this is an INCOMPLETE list!! There's tons more, but obv I have to get to work on the questionnaire. Thanx everyone for you're letters of support!

    They're makin' fun of you, honey! Don't give in! You can always come "hunker down" with me and Columbia in our hurricane bunker.

    Look at Tonya Harding! When her skate came undone that time, the "judges" gave her a do-over! Don't cry like she did, though, obv.

    Here's what you do: don't make any changes on the questionaire - just write at the top: Hello! Ginsberg Principle?

    Good luck, Harriet! I am rooting for you. P.S. Have you ever been to Strike Bethesda? It's a really neat bowling alley, right outside of Washington, D.C.! You should stop by one night to have a cocktail, bowl a few frames, and "blow off steam"!!! Be Strong, Harriet - Don't let the b*stards get you down!!

    If life hands you lemons, make lemonade. If Patrick J. Leahy gives you a mulligan... make mulligan stew!

    Hey Harriet,

    Newsweek mentioned your blog in it's "Blogwatch" section! However, they called it a parody...what's up with that? They are a national magazine, they should get their facts straight!

    WooWOO Go Harriet!

    strike bethesda is awesome!! also, I thought of another great do-over in history: the 2000 election!

    If you need help with those nosy questions, just ask us - you're blog fans - for the answers. We won't tell a sole!

    Like that one about your "Pro Bono" work. I assume they mean Mary Bono & not Sonny or the U2 guy. So here's what you should say: "I am very Pro Bono. I always prayed she'd get to be a Congressman and look what happened! Now she can return the favor and vote for me."

    Like I always say: When life gives you questions, make a questionaire!

    Harriet, you know I love you babe. But I wonder...has this turned into a nightmare for you?

    Harriet, Harriet, Harriet, that is what I so love about you!!!!

    Did Columbus quit when they said he'd sail off the ends of the earth?

    Did Nixon quit when they said he was a crook? (hmmm, actually he did)

    Did the colt-45's quit, er, I mean the Lastros, er, Astros, quit when they said that they'd never make a World Series?

    Did the Lions quit when they said that they'd never make a Super Bowl? (uh, actually, they haven't...)

    Did Einstein quit when they said his "cosomological constant" was a bad idea? (it might not have been, actually)

    Anyway, you hang in there and you show 'em!

    Love

    ollie

    Just a teeny one, Har -- SCOTUS didn't overrule Dred Scott, the People did, by passing the 13th and 14th Ams, and by doing a lot of dying in Civil War.

    I know YOU knew that, b/c you've been reading up a ton. I just thought I'd mention it for the sake of your fans, so we can all be "on message," just like our President!

     
  • At 2:04 PM, Blogger Rowan said…

    Harriet! Are there you're like, for real answers to the senate? http://billmon.org/archives/002279.html

    Cause it sounds like it's totally you, but I didn't see it on you're blog first so I dunno.

     
  • At 3:37 PM, Blogger Judge Not! said…

    "Incomplete to insulting" !?!?! Hariett, I know you didn't mean to be insulting to the Senaters and they know it too! They are so rude somtimes!

     
  • At 4:12 PM, Blogger MsSmartyPants said…

    Harriet - I saw this listed as 1 of ur accomplishments: 1987: Chair, Advisory Committee, Girls, Inc. (at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/10/18/AR2005101800616.html )

    OMG! I thought Girls, Inc was for abortionist lesbians?! good thing u stopped after 1 year!

    You know what, Harriet? Your blog reminds me of one of my heroines, Jean Teasdale (http://hometowns.cyber-net-village.com/Orlando/7302/Rick/sportzone/misc/folders/Jean/).

    She too has had her trials and tribulations (no pun intended, tee hee).

    I love you Harriet! Please help me! I'm stuck in the Harris County Sheriff's Office!

    Fucking Ronnie Earl made me take a mug shot!

     
  • At 4:30 PM, Blogger demonsurfer said…

    err.. is this blog for real? I got the impression it's a tongue-in-cheek setup much like TheOnion.com, but these other commenters sure seem to think it's kosher..

     
  • At 4:48 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said…

    You forgot the greatest do over in the history of the world, which was... wait. Can I call a mulligan on that?

    Hey, Harriet! What's Arlen REALLY like? I worry about him, I really do. Those serious types..., well, you know.

    Anyhoo, MSN First Read says that you'll keep those boys busy through T-giving. You go, girl. Take them some of your famous Cranberry Surprise. Can't hurt.

    Bring me the recipe while you're at it

    This blog is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. Keep it up - ESPECIALLY if Miers makes it to SCOTUS!!!!!!!!!!

     
  • At 5:24 PM, Blogger Stacy said…

    You go Harriet! Dont let those elitist intellectuals scholars like Cass Sustein get you down! I mean, what do they know, other than how to interpret the Constitution? They are just jealous because they have devoted their lives to scholarly study of the Constitution, know it backwards and forwards and who does Bush give the SCOTUS job to? You! And I bet you've never even read the Constitution. Well, maybe not since first year law school, right?

     
  • At 9:24 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said…

    Harriet! Harriet Miers!

    If we could establish a permanent moon base, would you want to live there?

     
  • At 9:26 PM, Blogger ollie said…

    Harriet, Harriet, don't worry about the eggheads! They are just jealous because they don't have your COMMON SENSE.

    After all, how many of those eggheads recognize that Pres. W is "brilliant" or "the best governor that Texas has ever had" like you can!

    There are other reasons that they are jealous; some envy your "biddy bum", others envy your sense of style, and other's envy the fact that you, yes you, are the apple in Pres. W's eye.

     
  • At 10:17 PM, Blogger ollie said…

    One more itty-bitty thing: this questionare seems, uh, so...HARD.

    It just isn't fair; those mean bullies are picking on our Harriet!

    Copy of the completed questionare:

    http://graphics8.nytimes.com/packages/pdf/politics/2005_MIERS/HEM_Questionnaire_final.pdf

    Hey, I have an idea: why don't we all pitch in and help our Harriet out? You know; a "group project" type thing!

     
  • At 10:37 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said…

    All right, listen up!

    Is anyone here from Arizona's 3rd or 6th congressional district?! If you are, you should know that your U.S. Representative hates chemistry.

     
  • At 11:53 PM, Blogger Sometimes Reckless said…

    I love you Harriet Miers!

    WABC's John Batchellor said he has a big announcement about you tonight at midnight.

    wabc.com, if you want to listen online.

    God bless you, Harriet!

     
  • At 12:09 AM, Blogger lee_atwater said…

    Harriet,
    You shouldn't work so hard and be so respnsible all the time...don't work on that annoying questionaire those mean senators keep harrassing you with all by yourself. You can find people on the Internets who will take tests for you! Go for it...your worth it!!!

     
  • At 12:15 AM, Blogger frieda406 said…

    harriet - just one teensy comment so you can get prepared for those old stogeys on capital hill - learn the difference between proportional representation of minorities on elected boards vs. 1 man 1 vote rules guiding legislative redistricting. you looked a little like a dumbbell w/your answer on your first questionnaire. that's probably the easiest constitutional question they'll be asking you. oh, and harriet, ditch those pearls and the navy blue. not a good look for you.....

     
  • At 12:23 AM, Blogger Sometimes Reckless said…

    Please consider reading Mark Levin's book: "Men in Black...."

    Then contact him, tell him you read it, & you just might have a new friend in your corner.

     
  • At 1:53 AM, Blogger Sometimes Reckless said…

    We had five justices with the proper "credentials" who voted for Eminent Domain.

    What does that tell us?

    Duh

     
  • At 2:07 AM, Blogger Ross said…

    Don't worry Harriet. Everyone sometimes needs do-overs, that's why they make erasers on pencils!!! PS I like your song, you should do more of those when you are CONFIRMED to the supreme court! I think it would loosen up all the other justices and help them have better JUDGE-ment!

     
  • At 7:36 AM, Blogger ollie said…

    Hey Gyrobo, good for those Arizona congressmen. I simply just HATE chemistry too.

    Why? Those mean-old professors won't grade on a curve; they actually expect you to KNOW the material on the test in order to get a good grade.

    SP-1 orbitals, this orbitals, that orbitals, pi-bonds, the uncertaintity principle....my poor head just swims!!!!!!!

    BTW, did you know that our Harriet was a MATH MAJOR as an undergraduate????

    Oh Harriet, my love and affection gradient just points toward YOU!!!

  • At 10:23 AM, Blogger ollie said…

    Hey, good news: Senator Durbin (one of my senators) said that you have left the Senators "shaking their heads"! You must have really "wow-ed" them! Keep up the good work!

    I am so confident that you'll get confirmed that I took the liberty of writing up a form by which people can apply to be your law-clerk:

    hi there harriet

    when you finally get on the scourt, can you ask ch jus roberts to put those gold stripes back on the robe? they were soooooooooo bitchin!

    speaking of the robes, have you guys ever thought about getting some of those stp patches like the nascar drivers have? like, you could have corporate logos from halliburton and bechtel and focus on the family. and scalia could have an opus dei logo. does opus dei have a corporate logo? you used to be catholic, harriet, do you remember?

    btw, if scalia gives you a hard time about that whole converting to protestantism thing, you just remind him that YOU were appointed by a TWO-term president, so there!

     
  • At 11:00 AM, Blogger joe_091879 said…

    umm... Scalia was appointed by Reagan...

     
  • At 11:25 AM, Blogger Mac said…

    Harriet, please tone down the makeup, just a bit. I'm begging you.

  • At 12:27 PM, Blogger Molly said…

    Harriet, those stinkers in the Senate are just a bunch of poo-poo heads. Don't they know that being a team player is more important than any silly old questionnaire?! I mean, what is this, junior high slam books all over again??? "1. Who do you like? 2. What do you think of the person who wrote in this before you?"

  • At 12:43 PM, Blogger Tom DeLay said…

    Yo Harrie, you are like so gonna get confirmed. Now the evil librul media is focusing on me and my mug shot. They've already forgotten about you.

    So, when you get on the Court, can you like pardon me or something?

     
  • At 2:07 PM, Blogger Johnny Pez said…

    reagan appointed scalia? get OUT!

    anyway harriet you just tell him that at least YOUR president wasn't suffering from alzheimers when he nominated you. and that YOUR president is the most brilliant president in american history EVER, so THERE!

     
  • At 2:39 PM, Blogger Johnny Pez said…

    btw, is the slogan contest over? because i just came up with the best slogan:

    harriet possible: so not the courtroom drama!

    is that cool or what?

     
  • At 9:27 PM, Blogger Lulu Maude said…

    Harriet, your swell. In fact, your just about the best. Dont be a quitter. Always be true to your teeth and theyll never be false to you.

    Perky will overcome!!!

    Talk about "do overs". I recently had to re-do my NASCAR site because it wasn't 'sporty' enough. LOL...Funny huh? Thanks and good luck.
