Tuesday, October 04, 2005A lot of my fellow liberal bloggers are pleased enough with the Miers nomination. Although they may be right and Miers is the best we are going to get out of Bush, I am still going to argue that she should be opposed. Her only qualification for the bench is that she has no qualifications. Combined with the bald cronyism of the appointment, that renders her unacceptable. I'm afraid that my lefty pals are just assuming that she is more liberal because she has no paper trail. While there is some indication that she is a moderate on social issues, this does nothing to ease my worry about how yet another nondescript corporate lawyer with political connections will rule on regulatory and separation of powers issues.
So I say vote no. No more gambling with our nation's Constitution.
