Miers: NAACP Not “Politically Charged”

Filed under: Judiciary — Patterico @ 2:58 pm

If you were surprised to read on Drudge that Harriet Miers once called the Federalist Society too “politically charged” for her to become a member, then you haven’t been reading Patterico. I told you about that six days ago.

At the time, I was amused (and distressed) that she didn’t find the ABA “politically charged.” Now I’m further amused (and distressed) that she thought the same about the NAACP.

UPDATE: Reporters suck. Even though it’s a week-old story,they’re just now asking Scott McClellan about Miers’s views of the Federalist Society. Why? Because Drudge reported it.

Online Petition Opposing Miers Nomination

David Frum has an online petition against the confirmation of Harriet Miers.

I might have worded it a bit differently if I had written it myself. Nevertheless, I think it’s an important way to communicate the grassroots opposition to this nomination. I have signed it, and I encourage other opponents of the nomination to do the same.
