I am going to have faith in President Bush.

Well, on the one hand appointing someone who's never been a judge to the SUPREME COURT might be considered a little... um... irrational. But on the other, I trust Bush and we all know he is aware this is the moment we conservatives have been waiting for. The moment is ours. I have faith, even in a slightly unorthodox move.

I find it interesting that Bush is facing so much criticism and hostility from Republicans ... not Democrats ... over Meirs' nomination. But I can agree with Pat Buchanan when he says, "He chose her because he thinks it's a safe choice, and he doesn't want a fight. He doesn't understand politics. He is in a weakened position. What he needs is a great battle on a great battlefield, a philosophical struggle, where all of his constituency, all of his coalition, would unite behind him."

While I do not question her credientals as a lawyer. It is not uncommon for lawyers to suddenly step into the shoes of a judge or magistrate. However, often merely elevate from the role of an advocate to the role of a fact finder. Even as appellate judges, they would may determine disputes of law. However, at the Supreme Court level, we are dealing with disputes of constitutional law. As constitutional scholar Bruce Fein notes, "if Miers was a good contender for the court, she would have written or said something of constitutional pertinence. The Supreme Court is not the place for on-the-job training after 60 years."
