The liberal spin of Harriet Miers continues

I think the SCLBs are trying

I think the SCLBs are trying to convince themselves that it's okay not to oppose Miers. Probably because they're so enjoying the apparent tizzy into which she's thrown the conservatives (I know I am).

The tripping ground for a lot of people is the fear that if we "make" Bush choose another, this time s/he won't be nearly so "liberal." But even if there is hope that she is not a Bushlike nut, I oppose her confirmation on the simple grounds of qualification: She shouldn't be, because she isn't.

That seems to me concrete, and I have to go with that over a lot of "what-ifs."

If she is a Trojan horse

If she is a Trojan horse canidate, then she has to have some bombshell in her past that will be revealed before the vote, as it is too much of a risk of her actually getting confirmed.

Miers

Thanks for the Ivins piece. I'm adding it to my growing list of pieces about Miers.

:)
