Supreme Court pick is a 'natural follower'
Harriet Miers, Bush's nominee for the remaining Supreme Court seat has no experience as a judge, no background as a legal scholar and -- for the past 7 years -- no record of deviating from Bush talking points. She's the president's counsel and long-standing crony.
But don't take my word for it, here's conservative David Frum writing on the even more conservative National Review website: "Harriet Miers is a taut, nervous, anxious personality..."
And then there's this juicy bit which, according to Ben Wikler, was removed at around 10 am without explanation:
"She rose to her present position by her absolute devotion to George Bush. I mentioned last week that she told me that the president was the most brilliant man she had ever met. To flatter on such a scale a person must either be an unscrupulous dissembler, which Miers most certainly is not, or a natural follower. And natural followers do not belong on the Supreme Court of the United States."Hmm, wonder why that was removed... (Frankenblog)
