Sunday Night Poll

President Junior and Harriet at a 1996 ADL love-in (via Debbie Schlussel)

The blogosphere has been abuzz the last two weeks with Harriet Miers-this and Harriet Miers-that. Some people (myself included) have been lamenting President Junior’s atrocious pick for the open SCOTUS seat, while others are saying shut up and support President Junior, no matter what! Still, others are supporting the pick by touting Harriet’s stellar track record (Texas Lottery Commission, Texas Bar Association, Texas Roadhouse Restaurant, Meals on Wheels, etc.) and are tickled pink that she’s going to be the next O’Connor.

The most entertaining part of the whole cyberbrawl thus far has been the variety of defenses used to bolster President Junior’s gargantuan mistake. This brings us to the topic of this week’s Sunday Night Poll.

What has been your favorite defense of the Harriet O’Connor Miers pick?

President Junior says “trust me” and that’s good enough for me. Just like when George looked into Vlad Putin’s eyes and saw his soul, letting him know that Vlad was a man who could be trusted.

She was the best woman candidate we could get at this time. Because the media told us that this was the O’Connor seat, it just HAD to be a woman.

Don’t you realize you’re supporting NARAL and MoveOn.Org everytime you oppose the Miers nomination!?! What are ya’ll, a bunch of moonbats or something?!

Harry Reid nominated her and if that’s good enough for Junior, that’s good enough for me.

Harriet Miers is an Evangelical Christian!

All you Harriet critics are just elitists!

All you Harriet critics are just sexists!

The Dr. Evil Defense.

Andrew Sullivan supports her, that’s good enough for me.

Shut up! Just shut up!

Incidentally, according to Time, the White House plans to re-launch Miers’ SCOTUS nomination this week. Special secret note to Karl Rove: Give me a call if you plan to re-launch it with a better candidate, otherwise, you might as well pack it in.


  1. Just a minor quibble…I didn’t mean opposing her was supporting NARAL, etc. … I meant (and still do) mean that the loud anti-Miers campaign does the dirty work for those moonbats.
    Writing letters to Senators and the WH is one thing, but the loud old media/new media campaign against her precludes the need for NARAL, MoveOn, etc. to spend advertising dollars.
