Miers out

CNN.com – Miers withdraws Supreme Court nomination – Oct 27, 2005
Unsurprisingly, given its broad opposition, Harriet Miers has withdrawn from being a nominee for the US Supreme Court.
While the reason given I think is a fig leaf, I think the real reason is that the “Darth Vader” wing of the Republican Party wasn’t convinced she was completely on their team.
Me, I didn’t like her because she was plainly unqualified to sit with the other eight justices. I’d rather have someone smart, and completely at odds with my philosophy than someone who can’t pull their weight on the most important Bench in the land.
