Hillyer On Meirs

Nice post on NRO.

Folks, this isn't about elitism. I don't care where Meirs went to school. I don't care that she's not attending tonight's National Review dinner in NYC. She could be pro wrestling afficianado for all I care, and I would support her nomination if there were one shred of evidence to suggest that she has a proper understanding of the judiciary.

So far, there isn't, and these evangelical defenses of her aren't holding an ounce of water.

The post you call 'nice' by Quin Hilyer is anything but.

"Can Harriet Miers knowledgeably discuss the important issues raised by Saenz v Roe? What does she think of Clarence THomas' separate opinion in it concerning the applicability of privileges/immunities? Does she even have a clue?"

Mr. Hilyer asks a couple rhetorical questions, implies the the candidate would be too stupid to know the answers, then bases his case on that lack of knowledge. That's a pretty cheap, juvenile literary technique, placing Mr. Hilyer himself in 'Feinstein territory'.

Therefore, I disagree that this is a 'nice' post. This is one of the least impressive articles I've seen on this subject.

Regarding the "evangelical" defense, wasn't that offered as a reason for such Christians to support Carter? Didn't Clinton claim to be a Southern Baptist?

How did that turn out?
