The Godfather Calls for a "Hit": Bork says Miers pick "a disaster on every level".

With all due respect to Nickie Goomba, The Godfather of the conservative legal movement calls for a "hit" on Miers.

Here's Don Bork beating around the bush, as usual:

I think it’s a disaster on every level. ... [T]his is a woman who’s undoubtedly as wonderful a person as they say she is, but so far as anyone can tell she has no experience with constitutional law whatever. Now it’s a little late to develop a constitutional philosophy or begin to work it out when you’re on the court already. So that—I’m afraid she’s likely to be influenced by factors, such as personal sympathies and so forth, that she shouldn’t be influenced by. I don’t expect that she can be, as the president says, a great justice.

But the other level is more worrisome, in a way: it’s kind of a slap in the face to the conservatives who’ve been building up a conservative legal movement for the last 20 years.

Check out the whole interview of the Godfather with MSNBC's Tucker Carlson.

Clearly, he is just an elistist, or a liberal, or a sexist ... or maybe just not on the WH payroll or trying to get invited to the White House. Ain't no big deal, any way. Right, Nick?
