Is the president's crony good enough for the court?

The esteemed Stuart Taylor says no.

"The Senate should reject any Supreme Court nominee - especially one close to the president - who has not proven herself to have extraordinary ability and independence of judgment unskewed by loyalty.

The woman who once called Bush the most brilliant man she had ever met has not met this burden of proof during her first 60 years. Unless she can do so in the next few weeks, she should be treated with respect, praised for her character and accomplishments, and voted down."

Still unqualified. Still a crony. Still Harriet Miers. Court in crisis - Day 7.
