An Unsurprising and Disgusting Choice

Hugh Hewitt maunders on about Bush's nomination of Harriet Miers for the Supreme Court and wonders why "the base" is so upset by it.

"The base" is upset because they've been busting their humps defending Bush from the charge that he's a crony-loving corporate shill only to have the Bush Baby reward them by sticking his finger down his throat and projectile vomiting in their faces.

Abe Fortas had more qualifications for the Supremes than she does. She's a big-government corporatist hack whose only qualification for the job is that she has a lapdog-like devotion to W.

That's it.

I defend Bush when he gets unjust treatment from the mainstream media and the usual gang of pro-fascist leftist idiots. This does not mean that he gets any sort of pass from me on stupid behavior. Believe it or not, there are those who are consistently principled and who reject feeble affirmative-action hires for good reason. EVEN IF MIERS TOOK A BLOOD OATH PUNISHABLE BY A THUNDERBOLT FROM ZEUS THAT SHE WOULD VOTE AGAINST ROE V. WADE OR IN FAVOR OF JUDICIAL RESTRAINT, SHE WOULD STILL BE A BAD CHOICE, especially when women judges of far higher caliber than Miers are fully available to Bush Jr.

This is Bush's "To Blazes with you, I wanted Alberto Gonzales" moment.

Update: These are the kind of people Miers made her money off of. It could be argued that this would no more dispose her to defend government intervention in favor of business than a criminal defense attorney's choice of specialization augers for her to want more crimes committed. The cronyist career of Miers suggests otherwise.

Hi Ernie,

Why do you say that Miers is "a big-government corporatist hack" and a "feeble affirmative-action hire"? Just curious.

Jason,

Answering your second question first:

Because if she was male and not a friend of Bush, we'd never have heard of her.

As for the rest, she's been a mouthpiece for corporations like Microsoft and Disney for most of her career. In a world where intellectual property rights were zealously garded and properly protected under law, Bill Gates would be in jail.

Likewise, Disney is a perfect example of the usually phoney stereotype of the "evil corporation," as the following link demonstrates...

It was my sisters old computer, which always worked fine for her but when put it in my room it no longer works properly. The keyboard and mouse are still on, the number lock light is illuminated, but when i hit Cap lock the light doesn't come on. The computer isn't frozen, the clock works and the little hour glass appears by the mouse. Because the buttons don't work Ctrl Alt Del doesn't work, or Alt F4. I can't open a virus scan either.
