... And Some Conservative Pundits React, Negatively

Some conservative pundits are unhappy with President Bush's nomination of Harriet Miers to fill Sandra Day O'Connor's Supreme Court seat.

It's the sort of rift that should provide incentive to Democrats on the fence -- this nomination is worth fighting.

Some examples of the negative conservative reaction:

"What Julie Myers is to the Department of Homeland Security, Harriet Miers is to the Supreme Court," wrote conservative pundit and blogger Michelle Malkin.

"Think of (Miers) as a very capable indentured servant of the Bush family," wrote conservative contrarian Andrew Sullivan. "She'll do what they want. ... I have no idea about her judicial philosophy. But I imagine that's the point."

"This is not a Scalia, a Rehnquist or, for that matter, a John Roberts in terms of quality of pick. It's hard to interpret (the nomination of Miers) as anything but flinching from a fight," said Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, in an interview on Fox News Channel. "He has passed over conservative judges, including female judges, who have long and distinguished records on the federal and state supreme courts."

Hey, here's an idea: if everyone that reads blogs like this one sends a gift-wrapped bottle of Thunderbird, or Night Train, or Boone's Farm to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, we could have thousands--no millions-- of bottles of wino wine piling up at his front door!

Propogate the meme throughout the sphere!


Or wrap it up yourself.
