William Kristol hears about the Harriet Miers pick and is "Disappointed, Depressed and Demoralized." Rod Dreher at National Review Online asks, "What was Bush thinking?" The Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler says, "President Milquetoast just couldn’t wait to drop trou, bend over and invite the Dhimmicrats in again by nominating Miers to the Supreme Court." Zach Wendling of In the Agora says, "Where were you when you heard that Bush had just plain given up?"
James Dobson of Focus on the Family says, "We welcome the president's nomination of Harriet Miers to the U.S. Supreme Court." Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice, the anti-ACLU founded by Pat Robertson, praises her. Marvin "Compassionate Conservatism" Olasky quotes a source who says "conservatives have nothing to worry about."
So don't be too happy about the pick.
And yes, David Frum has written,
In the White House that hero worshipped 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.
No, really. That's not a joke.
