Give Miers a Supreme Chance!

Some say Miers' qualifications are paper-thin. They ignore the fact that she has held numerous leadership positions. The liberals forget that for years she has broke through numerous corporate glass ceilings with hard work, sound moral convictions & absolute integrity. A lifetime devoted to the law and applying it to everyday situations. Now the left wing democrats do not even want to give her a chance. The liberals are only anti - Harriet Miers because she was recommended by President Bush. Liberal House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi would be singing the praises of Miers, from the House floor she would be talking about how Miers blazed a path for others to follow. Pelosi would be shaming anyone that came against Harriet, claiming that the establishment was trying to keep the "Old Boy Network' intact and hold qualified women down. Yes Nancy would, except she can't be objective. Pelosi can only be a Bush hater. The Senate should give Miers an Up or Down vote. The Judiciary Committee is only going to be wasted partisan politics.

As Dubya might say, this is revisionist history -- except that it's really revisionist current events. The bulk of the opposition to Miers so far has come from the right, not the left. Up to now, the Democrats on Capitol Hill have contented themselves with sitting back and enjoying the show.

"Give her a chance" sounds like letting her try out the job and see if it's a good fit. You do understand, federalist, that this is a lifetime appointment, don't you.

Christ Almighty. Can't you people tell this women is a drunken Texas bar fly? I mean just look at her. Those tired, baggy, tequla-worn eyes tell me she's started her share of bar fights. Does she have tattoos? Yes, it's my damn business. You can bet your sweet asses that Ginsberg doesn't have tatoos. I mean, she's uglier than a box of poop but at least she's not a drunken Texas bar fly. Ginsberg looks more like a closet acid dropper if you ask me. I mean, she's an ultra-liberal and don't all ultra-liberals drop acid? If not, they damn well should. I do and I'm not an ultra-liberal but I'm not on the USSc either. I'm ugly but I'm not a woman. At any rate, if this Miers broad isn't a first class gin sewer, I'll eat my hat. now if you'll excuse me, it's Friday and I'm due for a Xanax Martini.

Ciao.

Blueflame1, I'm gonna laugh my vodka-sodden ass off when the Senate repubs dish out more "no" votes for this hideous Texas Shed Lizard than democrats. Man, the right is howling over this beast.

There is absolutely no reason for liberals to beat up on Miers...the conservatives are doing an bang-up job on their own.

Even George Will has taken time off from his baseball pontificating to savage the woman.

Except for the fact that this is probably the first step in cronyizing the Supreme Court...this whole situation would be hysterical.

There's one bright side of the Miers nomination. Ginsberg will no longer have to look at herself in the ladie's USSC locker room mirror and say, "Boy, am I ugly."

She's been replaced.

Teeth...does this woman own teeth? We should check. She is from Texas, after all.

Bob Lablob: OK, we get it: you don't think Harriet Miers is attractive. Something that wasn't funny initially doesn't get funnier the more times you try to tell it. Now give it a rest.

Yes I understand it is a lifetime appointment. What I mean by give her a chance is get the nomination out to the Senate floor. The Judiciary Committee is only going to be wasted partisan politics. Even though Nancy does not get a vote, she will be in full outrage before the Senate vote. Make sure your Senator has heard from you.

How Bush made his selection.

The story: President Bush defends naming old pal Harriet Miers for a seat on the Supreme Court, saying, "I picked the best person I could find."
In other words: I looked around and I saw Max, my gardener, who can really trim a hedge, and I said, okay, you're on the short list. Then Sal the chef came in with my lunch, beef stew. It was so good I was like yeah, now you're my man. But after lunch I nearly tripped over Harriet and it hit me like a thunderbolt! Whoa, she even went to college. . . . I think. So she got the nod. Sorry, Max. Sorry, Sal. Maybe next time. Embarrassed

She might have gotten a few appointments that men occupied before. Nice in a minor way, but there are so many women who can make the same claim.

Question is, did she argue a case which went a long way toward knocking down glass ceilings for everybody? No, she didn't. If she had, you might actually have a claim for her being something special. But you don't.

You can say that about most any lawyer.

Isn't "giving someone a chance" a little misplaced here? We're not talking about giving a guy a job running a punch press right after he gets released from jail. We're talking about the Supreme Couort.

It should be noted that the Judiciary Committee, like every House and Senate committee, has a Republican majority and a Republican chairman. How can you blam whatever problems Miers might have on the Democrats?
