Fences straddled, inquire within
So far I haven't taken any real position on Harriet Miers' nomination to the Supreme Court; while she wasn't my first (or even twenty-first) choice, I'm having too much fun watching a substantial segment of the GOP conveniently forgetting all that "All we ask is a simple up-or-down vote" stuff they blathered about on behalf of, for instance, John Bolton.
While one should never underestimate a Texas woman, and she's easily as qualified for the post as, say, McGehee, and has nicer legs to boot, this is not what I'd consider sufficient recommendation for the highest court in the land. Still, I'm not inclined to make a major fuss just yet, so for now, and with all due respect to N. Z. Bear, I am neutral on the Miers nomination.Posted at 8:14 PM to Political Science Fiction
