Conservative Revolt Against Miers Grows
. “A growing chorus of
conservatives” cast skepticism on President Bush’s selection of Harriet
Miers for the Supreme Court, “expressing worry not only about

calls it a “conservative uprising” and notes many former Bush allies
say the Miers pick “was a betrayal of years of struggle to move the
court to the right.”

They are completely correct about her credentials. Nominating someone with no experience as a judge is insulting to the country.
