Ah, The Sweet Breath of CronyismNo years on the bench, born-again Christian, said Bush was the "smartest man [she] ever met." What better qualifications are there? Here's a huge gob of spit in the eye of the merit and mental faculties. Thanks to Direland, I see two paragraphs from the David Frum National Review peice, including one that was deleted.
In the White House that hero worshiped the president, Miers was distinguished by the intensity of her zeal: She once told me that the president was the most brilliant man she had ever met. She served Bush well, but she is not the person to lead the court in new directions - or to stand up under the criticism that a conservative justice must expect.Another good link from Attywood
She rose to her present position by her absolute devotion to George Bush. I mentioned last week that she told me that the president was the most brilliant man she had ever met. To flatter on such a scale a person must either be an unscrupulous dissembler, which Miers most certainly is not, or a natural follower. And natural followers do not belong on the Supreme Court of the United States.
