Thoughts on Harriet Miers: Part 2

Yesterday, I linked to Al Mohler's site with some positives about Harriet Miers. Today, let's look at some negatives provided by none other than Ann Coulter.

Today, the main article is at her main page.

After today it may be in her archives.

I believe her first two sentences basically sum it up:

I eagerly await the announcement of President Bush's real nominee to the Supreme Court. If the president meant Harriet Miers seriously, I have to assume Bush wants to go back to Crawford and let Dick Cheney run the country.

Basically, Ann's premise is that sitting on the bench of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) is a great honor that she doesn't feel Harriet Miers is worthy of. Further, Ann states that there are some truly great Judges, lawyers, etc... that should have been offered the position because they have lived their lives in an attempt to promote the judiciary as set forth in the Constitution.

I have been a little leary about the Miers nomination. While on the one hand I would like to trust the President (and Vice President) on this decision, we really do not know how Harriet Miers will do on the bench.

I'll end with another quote from her:

Being a Supreme Court justice ought to be a mind-numbingly tedious job suitable only for super-nerds trained in legal reasoning like John Roberts.
