Harriet Graciously and Wisely Withdraws Her Name from Consideration

Harriet Graciously and Wisely Withdraws Her Name from Consideration

Conservatives and respecters of the Constitution collectively emitted a sigh of relief today at the news that Harriet Miers had graciously and wisely withdrawn her name from consideration for elevation to the position of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.

Outside of some hopeless Republican whores and lackeys, such as Hugh Hewitt, as well as some clueless Evangelical leaders, such and Jerry Falwell, Miers nomination had been opposed by all manner of Conservatives ranging from Michael Savage to Pat Buchanan to Robert Bork to Ann Coulter to Rush Limbaugh to the Concerned Women for America and on and on and on.

In proposing Miers as his choice for the Supreme Court pick to replace the retiring “moderate” (read: Liberal-leaning) Sandra Day O’Connor, Bush erred egregiously.  He erred in picking a long-time friend and associate (e.g., crony), as well as someone who is woefully under-qualified to sit on the highest court of the land – not to mention someone who is virtually unknown to most Americans, to say nothing of the fact that Miers is not exactly a true Conservative or “originalist.”

Almost universally, the same individuals (read Ann Coulter here) I named above were today expressing both relief and joy that Miers had seen fit to withdraw her name, but also HOPE that President Bush would this time around choose a true, known, and proven Constitutionalist.

Here’s praying and hoping that President Bush chooses Michael Luttig.

Yes, we can consider ourselves lucky that she withdrew herself. I just finished writing a post on my expectations for the new nominee. Judicial philosphy ranks a bit higher than number of x chromosomes.
