I Oppose The Miers Nomination!

Yes, I do oppose the Miers nomination....and hope the current poll by NZBear here makes it clear that there is a LOT of controversy over this troubled nomination.

For my part the solution is one of three parts;

1. She simply has no positions on anything that indicates she is other than a "follower", bendable by her current post. That does not sit well with me as it means no clear positions on major decisions while sitting on the court.

2. She has detractors from such a broad base as to limit the ability of the GOP/Meirs base (whatever that is) to push her through. At best it will be a dirty, dirty thing....far removed from the strictly partisan politics we have seen for the past two years.

3. What happened to GWB's pledge to turn the court? Not evident in this pick. It fails to form a coalition of the willing (to support her) from ANY group or organization, and in fact smacks of liberal Democratic thinking smacking of trying to push a round peg into a square hole.
