This Moron Was The Chief Moron's Supreme Court Pick

Bush nominated Harriet Miers to the highest court in the land as a sop to one of his most loyal cronies, but apparently the lightweight championed by Hugh Hewitt can't even handle a couple of aggressive Democrats.

Miers, a longtime Bush loyalist whose nomination to the Supreme Court was withdrawn in 2005 as a result of conservative opposition, led an office that will oversee legal clashes that could erupt if Democrats aggressively use their new subpoena power. Bush advisers inside and outside the White House concluded that she is not equipped for such a battle and that the president needs someone who can strongly defend his prerogatives.
