Who are you? Who Who. Who Who.

I have no idea what to think of Harriet Miers. I cannot tell if this is a shrewd political move, more outright cronyism, or just plain stupidity. This woman is accomplished but not so much as to earn her a nomination to the highest court in the nation. We'll just have to see how this plays out. I'm sure there will be more on her background as the week progresses.

Two things about her bother me: She was a retained Bush attorney before she ever held any office and her legal background is in litigation for corporations like Microsoft and Disney. If those are her credentials that she's hoping to ride on I cannot see how that can translate into qualifications for being able to interpret the constitution.

Although, it might be a good thing that she doesn't have any judicial experience. Perhaps she might offer a fresh perspective?

Clarence Thomas is to Antonin Scalia as Harriet Mier is to John Roberts? Lets hope not!
