Excessive Catholicism says a "bad" word about Miers nomination

"Mr. President, you've got some explaining to do. And please remember - we've been defending you these five years because of this moment."

Bullshit.
That's what the Miers nomination is. She is not only unqualified, but an unknown in terms of judicial philosophy. The only people happy with this nomination are Democrats. Bush ran away from a fight he could have won with a solidly conservative jurist. He has needlessly rewarded his political opponents and incentivized obstructionism. The president better know what he's doing, but I'm losing confidence pretty quickly.

Steve Dillard:

"Harriet Miers? Are you freakin' kidding me?!

Can someone--anyone--make the case for Justice Miers on the merits? Seriously, this is the best the president could do? [...] Thanks for nothing, Mr. President. You had better pray that Justice Miers is a staunch judicial conservative, because if she turns out to be another O'Connor then the Republican Party is in for a world of hurt.

Un-freakin'-believable."

David Frum:

"I worked with Harriet Miers. She's a lovely person: intelligent, honest, capable, loyal, discreet, dedicated ... I could pile on the praise all morning. But there is no reason at all to believe either that she is a legal conservative or--and more importantly--that she has the spine and steel necessary to resist the pressures that constantly bend the American legal system toward the left. This is a chance that may never occur again: a decisive vacancy on the court, a conservative president, a 55-seat Republican majority, a large bench of brilliant and superbly credentialed conservative jurists ... and what has been done with the opportunity?"

Excessive Catholicism: Bullshit.
