Harriett Miers - Just Another Lawyer
What an intellectual midget compared to the host of other candidates in the pool.
Who is using the administration brain cell these days, cuase it sure ain't W.
There are those that say this is a shrewd move - she is a woman, lots of experience in law, no judicial record to bash, first lady head of the Texas ABA, others on and several other justices had no judicial experience either when nominated...
All good pionts, but the reason this is such a poor nomination is that this lady has nothing to make up for the fact that she has no judicial experience which I think opens her up to the kind of witchfinder general grilling she will receive from the likes of Schummer, et. al.
Now, if she was a Moynihan, or a Bork, etc., people who were scholars of the law, then the confirmation hearings could shed light on the leanings of each candidate and provide the kind of debate I think this nation needs on cases like Affirmative Action, Privacy, States Rights, etc., - in this case Bork to the right of Atilla The Hun and Moynihan to the center. What is Miers going to show us?
All the planets have aligned for the right to put two people on the bench who could bring some retraint to the silliness and irresponsibility that the court has doled out since the 70s. This historic opportunity to pound one on the left's face has passed us. I don't think this lady is of the same judicial timbre as others who have been put in for nomination.
Just another lawyer just does not cut it, W.
John Edwards was just another lawyer, too.
Miers to Replace O'Connor
Who is Miers?
I did want Janice Rogers Brown though.
Besides, as much as I would like to go to war with the left...do you really want the RINO's in the Senate to be your army? It may be more sly than we are giving W. credit for.
She's not even a particularly talented lawyer or jurist (like Roberts is). She's a Bush crony and syncophant so it shouldn't surprise anyone that she got the nomination.
Greens and Libertarians, Unite!
And don't assume that those are 'Soros Pelosi talking points' most of the information about her lack of qualifications comes from consevative pundits and people who know her.
But I don't hate her, not at all. Frankly I'm glad that if she truly is a born again conservative she will probably be a very inneffective jurist. However if she is not, and has managed to get a lifetime appointment where she is free to rule in a non partisan way, then she is much more clever than I gave her credit for and will surely provide an 'interesting' legal position.
