    Meirs was a bad choice, plain and simple. George Bush has finally alienated everyone in this country.

    Perhaps. Frankly, deciding the fitness of a SC Judicial nominee is complex and I don't honesly feel qualified to have an opinion yet. Yet. Not until I know more about her, at least. Maybe your experince is vastly different from mine and you can say with certainty that she's a bad pick. If so, rock on.

    My point, however, is that many here seem to have cherry-picked (or, rather, sour-grape-picked) Reid's statement and dismissed the fact that he made it pretty clear in his statement that Miers isn't going to get a free pass. Nothing in Reid's statement say to me "The Dems caved", and the fact that so many are having fits over it seems to indicate to me that they are going to have fits in any case, regardless of what the facts might be.

    As long as the prerequisite for that shining Paradise is ignorance, bigotry, and hate... I say the Hell with it. --Inherit the Wind

    •  Well, Reid has shown us in the past (none)
      that he's a wishy-washy Senator, almost as squishy as Joe Leiberman. He showed his true colors when he caved under Frist's bad poker bluff the nuke the filibuster and he caved again after accidentally growing some backbone in calling Bush "a loser."

      There's a small chance, however, that Reid could be playing possum and deliberately baiting the GOP by seeming to endorse Harriet Miers. But I am utterly incapable of understanding how anyone not in a straitjacket would ever seriously consider her (Bush, we've already established, is crazier than a shithouse rat on fire).
