what a jackass

Mr. Bush held a five-minute phone conversation with Justice O'Connor starting at 10:18 a.m., telling her, "For an old ranching girl, you turned out pretty good," a reference to her roots in El Paso, Tex.

He said this to a woman who was the first Supreme Court justice and served for 24 years. If I were her, I would have responded, "For a spoiled, cokehead, self-serving, momma's boy, jackass, you got pretty damn lucky."
