DOES THE AP PROOF WHAT THEY PRINT?
Wednesday, January 11, 2006
David Espo commented on yesterday's confirmation hearing for Sam Alito described the Jersey jurist as "Bush's pick to succeed Justice Sandra Day O'Connor for the swing seat on the court." I read and reread my Pocket Constitution and have not yet found any reference to "swing seats" on the Supreme Court. Can someone help?

    Ha! Keep looking, but I don't think you're going to find it!

    Ah, c'mon, Mo, you're no help :)

    Seriously, I don't know if they require journalists to go to school anymore--or maybe they are just products of our public education system. What can we expect, huh?

    I blame Bush, because that's seems to be what they are doing. :o)

    I found no record of playground equipment being installed in at the Supreme Court.

    Mo, You're absolutely right! I think Bush was responsible too for the tsunami, the hurricanes, the reason the U.N. can't do its job, radical islam, and the increase in fire ants in my yard this last summer!

    Me either, Danny!

    Thanks for dropping by to comment.

    Regards,

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".


Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.


Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.


In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
