    •  I agree with that and your diary (none)
      I just find all this let's attack her now stuff a little misplaced because unlike Roberts where there was no consultation we have that here. She shouldn't be given a free pass and should be scrutinized even more than Roberts because she has no paper trail at all. But, a lot of people here have been screaming - she's Scalia in a dress. She's a fundie. My point is that we won't know what she is until she's vetted. The stuff about Gore also confuses me by the way.

        It doesn't matter.

        We need a narrative - and it doesn't start with saying 'I reject anyone Bush nominates.'

        It begins with insisting on the information.

        Roberts was stonewalled. And Dems caved. On the No vote I mean.

        We need to reestablsh the line of required disclosure.

        •  I agree with this point and have nothing to add (none)
        •  The problem (none)
          is that neither of Bush's nominees have a history we can know. One of them has successfully stonewalled. That's a disturbing pattern. THAT'S why they shouldn't be trusted. It's a tactic desinged to get wingnuts appointed.
          It would be great if Miers confessed her true beliefs. I doubt she will, under any circumstances.
