It's not too late

Add Peggy Noonan to the growing list of conservative voices in opposition to the Miers nomination.

It's not too late to rescind the nomination. Anyone remember Douglas Ginsburg? And all he did was smoke a little weed.


On the other hand, one can always count on an insightful comment from the chairman of the DNC:

(Hardball, October 5) http://msnbc.msn.com/id/9601984/

MATTHEWS: Do you believe that the president can claim executive privilege?

DEAN: Well, certainly the president can claim executive privilege. But in the this case, I think with a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, you can't play, you know, hide the salami, or whatever it's called.

For some of us, "hide the salami" is not the aphorism that leaps to mind when thinking about Harriet Miers.

lol, that is *classic*! How did I miss that one? ;)

I think Noonan is off base if she thinks that public opinion about Bork's "weird" looks cost him a SC seat. I think it was the fact that 58 senators realized he didn't like Roe v. Wade, and he didn't like a lot of anti-trust rulings, and didn't like most civil rights laws, and didn't much care for the separation of church and state, and was a member of right-wing organizations like the Federalist Society and the American Enterprise Institute, etc.

In other words, he probably would have liked to return America to the 1950's.
