Bush Picks The Best Person He Could Find.

Facing criticism from both the right and left, President Bush, in a rare press conference, insisted that Harriet Miers is the best-qualified candidate for the Supreme Court.

Skeptical conservatives are blasting Bush for nominating a candidate with an unproven and largely unknown track record, and progressives are upset with the blatant demonstration of cronyism in Bush’s Supreme Court pick.

Harriet Miers has never run the
International Arabian Horse Association.

In his defense, Bush said that “I’ve known her long enough to know she’s not going to change, that 20 years from now she will be the same person with the same judicial philosophy she has today.” However, Bush also said that to his recollection, he has never sat down with Miers to discuss abortion.

In response to charges of cronyism, Bush said of Miers that “I picked the best person I could find.”

That “best person” has never been a judge and has absolutely no experience in Constitutional law. Which leads one to wonder: Who possibly could have been the worst person he could find? Was Michael Brown “the best person” he could find to head up FEMA?

Make no mistake, Miers is not a nobody. She’s the former head of the Texas Lottery Commission, not some schmuck who ran the International Arabian Horse Association. Which leads one to this possibility: Perhaps Bush would have been better off nominating Brownie as a Supreme Court judge and instead have Miers run FEMA. After all, she’s perfectly qualified…she’s one of Bush’s cronies.
