My kingdom for a juror with an open mind about Bush administration honesty

Jurors Questioned About War, Memory as Libby Trial Opens:
U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton, who is presiding over the trial, yesterday dismissed three of the nine potential jurors interviewed. Two were released after expressing strong feelings about the Bush administration.

"I am completely without objectivity," said a woman in her 30s, who was dressed in tailored brown trousers and a sweater. "There is nothing they could say or do that would make me think anything positive." Walton excused her immediately. Libby turned to watch her walk out of court. (emphasis added)
And this is just the first day, people. More:
The judge dismissed a young man in his 20s after he told lawyers and the judge: "I don't have the highest opinion" of the vice president.
They'll find their jurors eventually...:) I mean, how hard can it be to find people who think a top Bush official might not have been lying? I mean, really...:)
