All right, this is starting to be a pattern. For Supreme Court, nominate someone close to you, that no one else knows or can determine what sort of a Justice they will be. The only major credential Bush’s pick to replace Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, Harriet Miers, seems to have, is a long glorious relationship with Bush himself. From all the stuff I’ve seen, she’s never been a judge of any sort.
I just love that the Supreme Court is a place to put hacks and inexperienced loyalists these last few decades. *sigh* It’s only, you know, the top court in the land and the last defense against abuses of the other two branches. Or something.
AMERICAblog quotes the AP:
“We know even less about Harriet Miers than we did about John Roberts and because this is the critical swing seat on the court, Americans will need to know a lot more about Mier’s judicial philosophy and legal background before any vote for confirmation,” said Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., a member of the Judiciary Committee.
Please let’s hope there’s more contemplation by our Senate in the Miers nomination. Because, well, Roberts didn’t answer any questions, not the important ones anyway, and still got voted in overwhelmingly. He could be a right wing loony under that smooth salesman exterior, and we’ll only know after he votes to give away the homeworld.
Both these people, I expect, even if they don’t vote to overturn Roe, will vote to give away everything else to corporations. That’s the secret hidden danger in the SC right now in my opinion. You do realize that corporations have more rights than individuals now, yes?
