Lowry on Miers Nomination: Hypocrisy, Double Standards & Contradictions
Rich Lowry nails some of the big issues surrounding the Harriet Miers nomination to the Supreme Court.
Lowry begins with these words:
The nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court is foundering, but President Bush is confident that she will be confirmed. Bush thus displays a touching faith in the power of hypocrisy, double standards, and contradictions to see his nominee through. The case for Miers is an unholy mess, an opportunistic collection of whatever rhetorical flotsam happens to be at hand.
I would encourage you to read the whole editorial. Then read how Laura Bush is parroting the same words as her husband.
Second-rate is still second-rate, regardless of gender. No matter how hard the Bush administration tries, Harriet Miers is no Roberts, no Luttig, etc. Simply Bush league on this one. What a disappointment.
