So, why not Ozzie?
Believe it or not, Harriet Miers, Inerrant Boy's latest attempt to drown another instiution, this time the Supreme Court, has never served as a judge.
So why'd Bush nominate her? Still trying to win approval from Babs?
"[BUSH] Harriet's greatest inspiration was her mother..."
Pass the treacle!
UPDATE Let's ignore the winger frothing and stamping. And let's ignore the easy cheap shot that Miers, like Cheney (and Napoleon) crowned herself—in charge of the search, she determined she was the best. (No notion of conflict of interest with Republicans; it's lost to the Republican conscience, along with the duty of care.) No, what Bush did was put his consigliere on the Court that should, if there is any justice, try Him.
As the WaPo article above writes:
Miers came with Bush to the White House in 2001 as staff secretary, the person who screens all the documents that cross the president's desk.
So, Harriet Miers knows where all the bodies are buried.
James Ridgeway agrees:
By nominating Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court, President Bush is turning to a trusted advisor who has a reputation for keeping her mouth shutâ€”and putting her in a key position for damage control(via Village Voice
And one thing Miers would want to keep her mouth shut about is Bush's National Guard "Service".
