    And did I hear that George Will is saying she SHOULDN'T BE CONFIRMED by the Senate? I heard it, campers, I heard it. Man. Bush has really effed this one up. There is not a single serious conservative in America who thinks the Miers nomination was anything resembling a good idea.

    It makes no difference what your political leanings are. Bush mocks the American public when he doesn't even attempt to choose one of the most qualified people for such an important post.

    I agree. There were too many qualified conservatives to pick from, but they would have meant a fight, one which the WH decided not to engage in. So we will get her, we will. She will be confirmed.

    I don't care if Bush nominates someone who will rule in ways many will disagree with. It's his perogative to name the kind of justice he wants, he's the elected president. It's just that he should name the best of the breed. And as much as he likes to pull people out of the bullpen, for a position that might be filled for 30-40 years he should have avoided that for the sake of propriety.

    Not that those on Judiciary Committee would agree with you, but who here is?

    If I had to bet good money right now, I'd agree, but I am hearing from little birds here and there that some NEWS ITEM about Ms. Miers will drop that will be so much blood in the water. There is a credible chance that she WON'T actually be confirmed, if enough D's and R's come together over doubts.

    Here's the Will article from townhall.

    Read it. He basically says Bush is an idiot, but who hasn't figured that out already? We deserve a better conservative president.

    I'm thinking not. To much outrage out there already. I think Congress will,
    if they are smart, give her the boot. Better yet Bush an Co realize the error and withdraw her or she withdraws herself. We'll see.
