Trivia Tidbit Of The Day: Part 180~ish -- Harriet Miers, How Some Scoff at Thee

This is more of a quiz than a tidbit o' trivia-

I haven't done any blogging on Bush's selection to replace Justic O'Connor here or at my blog.

But unless you've been under a rock for the past few days, you know that Harriet Miers' nomination has raised a minor stink amongst conservatives *gasp*!

miers_raaarrr.jpg

Which of the following is the best reason (as a conservative) to not approve of Miers' nomination?


  1. Miers has never been a judge.
  2. She's gettin' on up there in age.
  3. She's donated to the DEMOCRATS!!!
  4. Cronyism!
  5. All of the above

Well whether you like a single item or letter 'e', a great counter to all of those arguments is here.

For example:

Miers never has been a judge: Neither had William Rehnquist, and that turned out rather well.
[snip]
She contributed to Democrats. Let's see a show of hands: Were any of us formerly Democrats who changed parties? There's Ronald Reagan, anyone else? Oh, yes...

Go read the whole thing. It's worth it regardless of where you stand on the issue.

Full disclosure: And were do I stand on the issue of Miers? Well, I haven't seen Serenity yet, but given the rave reviews and my general enjoyment of sci-fi, I probably will see it and enjoy it.

Hoodlumman purposely uses a no. 3 pencil on his Scantron quizzes at File it Under.

Hoodlumman... Just the idea that Harry Reid approves kind of makes me nervous! She must have something really super dooper wrong!

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at October 5, 2005 10:04 AM

I haven't seen Serenity yet, either. But Crusader at CoTS gave it thumbs up, so I'm looking forward to it.

Thank you kindly for the link. I am somewhat relieved to see that, if trackbacks to Patrick Ruffini's "Coalition of the Chillin' - SCOTUS Confirmation Division" post (cool graphic, too) are any indication, I'm not alone in urging a chill on the outraged Miers commentary from my fellow conservatives.

Hood, you are such a rebel.

Rules are made to be broken, bitches.

Posted by: Hoodlumman at October 5, 2005 11:14 AM

Which explains his extensive remedial education.

Do you suppose she would vote for Hillary? ... I am pleased that Hoodlumman uses a #3 pencil. It shows leadership and character!

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at October 5, 2005 04:03 PM

Harriet is a total mystery. We'll see what is dug up during the hearings.

Posted by: Hoodlumman at October 5, 2005 04:51 PM

Perhaps she is a biotch? If you will pardon the expression...I believe I learned that word from File It Under?

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at October 5, 2005 09:06 PM

Zsa... I have... no idea what you're talking about...

Posted by: Hoodlumman at October 5, 2005 09:45 PM

Maybe I spelled it wrong? I believe Rob might have taught me that one??? Last night I was having File It Under withdrawls! My computer wouldnt let me go there for some reason! Yikes, what a nightmare!

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at October 6, 2005 05:46 AM

You have it right, Zsa Zsa.

Sorry the Constitution and the country are more important than George. His famed loyalty doesn't extend to his base, whioch he chose to anger rather than the enemy. His fear of a fight with liberals and RINOs lack the tenacity with which he persues terrorists, when instituionalized liberalism on our Supreme Court has taken far more innocent lives then they.
Too many, for too long, have fought the good fight for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have it thrown away on a nerfball-pick. Those who support this pick, if honest, have had to talk themselves into it, based primarily on "Trust George"

"Trust George" is the main defense of this horrendous pick. Who did not trust Christ when He hand picked Judas?

Posted by: DL at October 7, 2005 05:54 AM

DL ... You are absolutely correct! "horendous" is a pretty good word for it!...I think of all of the wonderful choices out there George perhaps could have made a better choice!
