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.
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.
