About Miers. To Martinez. Opinions?
I beleive that the Republican party will be making a serious mistake if it
allows the Miers confirmation to proceed.

Miers lacks a paper trail and worse still, there seems to be evidence that
she supports affirmative action, supports expansive interpretation of the
commerce clause and opposes the Federalist Society. This is a very poor
choice of candidate when we control both houses and the presidency.

To quote my favorite sitting justice, Clarence Thomas "It is important not
just to have conservatives on the court, but also conservatives who have
been through the wars and survived." Miers may have a shallow veneer of
conservatism, but she has not had to defend those views against a world
trying to sway the court to the left. Souter, Stevens and Kennedy should
be proof enough that we need battle-tested conservative judges. If Miers
is so worthy of judgeship, let her be confirmed to an inferior circuit to
gain experience first. We cannot risk the next 20 years of SCOTUS
jurisprudence in such a manner.

Please help to defeat (or have the president withdraw) this unsatisfactory
candidate so that a more suitable conservative like Janice Rogers Brown
can be nominated. Janice Rogers Brown served for many years on the CA
Supreme Court before being confirmed to the DC Circuit this year. Her
opinions are incredibly well written, and many of them show a mind well
suited to handling constitutional issues (such as the
commercial/non-commercial speech distinction in the Nike case).
