Miscellaneous meanderings and philosophical ramblings. The title from a spiral notebook I used to jot down my thoughts on religion and other matters some years ago. I like to write, think and express my views on various issues. Robust discussion is welcome.

More Meirs criticism

From Bench Memos at NRO The Administration, Ms. Miers, and the Federalist Society by Richard W. Garnett

If Ms. Miers really does harbor the tiresome, skittish, establishmentarian, protect-the-guild wariness toward the society described in the accounts mentioned above — rather than respect for its work, admiration for the vision of David McIntosh, Steve Calabresi, Spence Abraham, and others who founded the Society more than 20 years ago, and gratitude for the dedication of hundreds of law students today who often take real hits in order to stand up for and strengthen the Society and its intellectual mission — then I am inclined to
think that she has not earned (no matter what church she attends, no matter how good a person and impressive a lawyer she is, no matter how much she abhors abortion, no matter how loyal she is to this President, and no matter how Rehnquist-like her record turns out to be) conservatives' support.

No matter how her record turns out to be!? That seems incredibly childish and short-sighted. Why can't people wait for the hearings? Perhaps, we will all see that she is not qualified; then again, some of these critics might found out that she is. If they do, hopefully the Democraps won't see the same thing, because sadly, these knee-jerk reactions have given them all the ammunition they need to derail this nomination.
