Miers gets an “Incomplete”

The Supreme Court nomination of Harriet E. Miers suffered another setback on Wednesday when the Republican and Democratic leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee asked her to resubmit parts of her judicial questionnaire, saying various members had found her responses “inadequate,” “insufficient” and “insulting.”…..rest of the NYTimes report

I thought this story was pretty funny. Its like sending a kid’s homework back with an “I”. The irony is that after all this “hungamma” many of the same Senators will turnaround and confirm her eventually. In any case, it doesn’t look like she is anywhere as savvy as Judge Roberts, who in my opinion was real real smooth.

The number of appointments that a President of the US makes is simply phenomenal. This is one example where this system is flawed. Miers has little to show for besides being the President’s “chela” and she gets nominated for a lifetime appointment to the most powerful body in the US. Thankfully there is at least a confirmation process for whatever it is worth.
