Miers is the wrong pick by George Will

I don't the reasons why Miers should be on the Supreme Court. Then again, the burden of proof is not on me. It is the job of the president and Miers to convince us why she deserves the job. I shouldn't have to search for reasons.

George Will weighs in with his opinion. It's a brutal and truthful piece. Only the brave should venture a read.

Here's a taste...

In addition, the president has forfeited his right to be trusted as a custodian of the Constitution. The forfeiture occurred March 27, 2002, when, in a private act betokening an uneasy conscience, he signed the McCain-Feingold law expanding government regulation of the timing, quantity and content of political speech. The day before the 2000 Iowa caucuses he was asked -- to insure a considered response from him, he had been told in advance he would be asked -- whether McCain-Feingold's core purposes are unconstitutional. He unhesitatingly said, ``I agree.'' Asked if he thought presidents have a duty, pursuant to their oath to defend the Constitution, to make an independent judgment about the constitutionality of bills and to veto those he thinks unconstitutional, he briskly said, ``I do.''
