Who would have been a better choice?
"This is a very poor choice," Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said after he and fellow Democrats privately discussed Bush's nomination of Alito.
"He (Bush) should have gone with Harriet Miers," Reid said.
Yes, Miers was OBVIOUSLY so much more qualified than Alito. What does he know about the Constitution anyway?
Of course Reid would rather have a flip-flopping, unprincipled moderate who doesn't understand the Constitution. Just like I would love to have complete buffoons as head of the Democratic Party and as House minority leader, the kind of jackasses whose antics cost their candidates 5 points in every election. Oh, wait. I have that already!
