Ok, I wasn't going to weigh in on this, but I keep getting these insane hopeful notes from colleagues who seem to believe that Bush's new nominee to the Supreme Court, Harriet Miers is a centrist.
WAKE UP PEOPLE!
The faux republican outrage is staged. This woman is a dangerous stealth candidate. She was chosen precisely because her paper trail is misleading. She is a friend of the presidents. He knows her views and he knows too that she is going to implement a radical right-wing agenda. What she wrote in the 90's and early 90's makes no difference--just like Bush's draft dodging and alcohol abuse. She, like him has been born again, and the only lens through which to view her is that one. It's why the republicans will absolutely refuse to release any recent writings.
Harriet Miers is going to be disastrous choice.
