Patrick Ruffini on Miers

        Glenn pointed this post out (thanks), and the following seems sensible to me:
        As our picture of Miers comes into clearer focus, the Souter II narrative begins to strain credulity.  It requires us to believe that the President who gave us Janice Rogers Brown, Michael McConnell, Bill Pryor, Priscilla Owen – and no RINO that I could name at the Circuit or District Court level, who fought the fight on Miguel Estrada, and who had originally orchestrated the masterful trade of Roberts-for-O'Connor, would suddenly punt at this critical moment.  It also requires us to believe that Miers, who has worked with Bush for a decade, who is the White House staffer most intimitately involved with vetting nominees' judicial philosophies, and is one of the people Bush knows best, has been able to hide her true beliefs from her boss until – Ah, ha! – she donned the judge's robe.  I'm sorry, but I don't think this is the same thing as an unknown from New Hampshire handpicked by Warren Rudman.

        Now, can anyone out there give me a positive reason she wouldn't be a good, fairly conservative Justice?

THE HOUSE OF SAUD MUST BE DESTROYED — AND WILL BE!
