Miers Withdraws her Nomination

George Bush has reluctantly accepted it. Well that episode is over. I think it reflects very badly on George Bush and not just because it was a political loss. Being less than qualified to be a Supreme Court justice is no insult. The vast majority of extremely talented and capable people are not qualified to be Supreme Court justices and so saying that Harriet Miers was among those whose qualifications fall under that high limit is no insult to her. It is, however, extremely unfair to anyone, to nominate them for such a post to which they are not qualified, and thus subject them to the public scrutiny that Harriet Miers faces. She has been treated shabbily by this president and in a manner that, I believe, is completely in line with his character.
