Bush dropped the ball by picking Miers for Supreme Court justice I eagerly await the announcement of President Bushs real nominee to the Supreme If the president meant Harriet Miers I have to assume Bush wants to go back to Crawford and let Dick Cheney run the Unfortunately for he could nomi nate his Scottish terrier and some conservatives would rush to defend claiming to be in possession of secret information convincing them that the pooch is a true conservative and listing Barneys many virtues never jumps on the furniture Harriet Miers went to South em Methodist University Law which is not ranked at all by the serious law school reports and ranked 52 by US News and World Her greatest legal accomplish ment is being the first woman commissioner of the Texas I know conservatives have been trained to hate people who went to elite universi and generally thats a good rule of But not when it comes to the Supreme Bush has no right to say Trust He was elected to represent the American not to be dictator for eight Among the coalitions that elected Bush are ANNCOULTER Ann Coulter is an attor author and a columnist for Universal Press people who have been laboring in the trenches for a quartercentury to change the legal order in While Bush was still boozing it up in the early Ed Antonin Robert Bork and all the founders of die Federalist Society began creating a farm team of massive legal talent on the To casually spurn the people who have been taking slings and arrows all these years and instead reward the former com missioner of the Texas Lottery with a Supreme Court appointment is like pin ning a medal of honor on some flunky paperpusher with a desk job at the Penta gon or on John ignoring your infantrymen doing the fighting and even if you take seriously William E Buckleys line about preferring to be governed by the first 200 names in the Boston telephone book than by the Har vard the Supreme Court is not sup posed to govern Being a Supreme Court justice ought to be a mindnumbingly tedious job suitable only for supernerds trained in legal reasoning like John Being on the Supreme Court isnt like winning a Best Employee of the Month Its a real One Web site defending Bushs choice of a graduate from an undistinguished law school complains that Miers critics are playing the Democrats claiming that the GOP is not the party which idol izes Ivy League acceptability as die criteri on of intellectual and mental In the sort of error that results from trying to sound Ivy League rather than being that sentence uses the grammatically incorrect which instead of Web sites defending the academically mediocre would be a lot more convincing without all the grammatical all the intellectual firepower in the law is coming from conservatives right thanks for noticing Liberals got stuck trying to explain Roe Wade and are still at work 30 years later trying to come up with a good But the main point is Au contraire It is conservatives defending Miers mediocre resume who are playing the Democrats Contrary to recent the job of being a Supreme Court justice is not to be a Only someone who buys into the liberals view of Supreme Court justices as philosopherkings could hold legal training irrelevant to a job on the Supreme To be if we were looking for an SMU law grad would probably be preferable to a graduate from an elite law But if were look ing for lawyers with giant brains to memo rize obscure legal cases and to compose clearly reasoned opinions about ERISA the doctrine of equivalents in patent limitation of liability in admi and supplemental jurisdiction under Section 1367 I think we want the nerd from an elite law Bush may as well appoint liis chauffeur head of NASA as put Miers on the Supreme Third and some jobs are so you can only send in someone who has the finely honed hatred of liberals acquired at elite universities to do The devil is an abstraction for decent Americans living in the red By at the top you come face to face with the devil every and you learn all his lit tle tropes and Conservatives from elite schools already have been subjected to liberal blandish ments and havent These are right wingers who have fought off the best and the brightest the blue states have to The New York Times isnt going to mau mau it does intellectual light weights like Jim Jeffords and Lincoln Chaiee by dangling fawning profiles before They arent waiting for a pat on the head from Nina Totenberg or Linda To paraphrase Archie when you find a conservative from an elite law youve really got However prompt and tidy she Harriet Miers isnt qualified to play a Supreme Court justice on The West let alone to be a real Both Republicans and Democrats should be alarmed that Bush seems to believe his power to appoint judges is This is what advice and consent
