Have I said anything about Harriet Miers lately?

It has been informative, inspiring and entertaining to participate in the raging debate at confirmthem.com. Lots of insight, information and wit ... with of course some gallows humor and irreverance mixed in. How can any feeling of reverance be associated with this disaster? (That is a rhetorical question, class.)

As a great example of the type of argument that the shills just shove aside with "Trust Me", check out this comment by "Insider":
Let’s review, shall we:

1.Her favorite Justice is “Earl… Warren…Burger”(?)
2.She “toned” down a WH Christmas message because it was “too Christian”(?!)
3.She set up a liberal lecture series at SMU.
4.She donated money to Al Gore AND the DNC.
5.She spoke out in favor of affirmative action quotas while she was at the Dallas City Council.
6. She presided over ABA meetings where official favorable ABA positions in regards to the International Crime Court and gay adoption were decided.
7. Bush named 4 persons to the Texas Supreme Court between 1994-2000, including Gonzo, while he named Miers….to the Texas Lottery Commision.
8. expressed dismay about the “federalist society types” Gonzo hed put in place at the Council’s Office (further comments unfavorable about federalist society also available at the Knight Ridder newspapers recent article).

Sounds like a “mainstream nominee”……. from the Clinton administration.

Harriet “Souter” Miers, ladies and gentlemen!
C'mon, Insider. "Trust and obey, for there's no other way ..."
