Comments: Harriet, Har-re-et, Hard-Hearted Harbinger of Incompetence

Your list of who is for Miers and who is against her needs some tweaking. Rush Limbaugh has clearly said he is "disappointed" by the pick and that it was made out of weakness in an effort to appease Bush's political opponents. He then wrote a piece for OpinionJournal.com justifying his (and other conservatives) opposition as a sign of the strength of the movement, not of a "crack-up". (It should be noted that David Limbaugh, Rush's brother, is a Miers supporter and actually engaged Professor Bainbridge in a "debate" about presidential prerogative and the Senate "advise and consent" role).

As for Gary Bauer, he is listed on the WithdrawMiers.org site as "deeply concerned".

I love the title..as that is from one of my fave movies.
Anyways, I can't believe you like George Will. He is such a loser.
And as for harriet, it sounds like she is really a moderate and I think she should get her fair chance to get to the bench. I think there is a quite a bit of sexism, elitism and plain old political games going on.

I don't care if you were the first one to use it or not...the title's great, second only in my mind to "Donna Martin Separates." Good one, Steve.
