Defeat Miers

We've put up with your gargantuan increases in federal spending. We've tolerated your singularly ham-fisted approach to Homeland security. We've accepted your strategic reluctance to go to the mat on important issues. We've acquiesced in your attempts to reach out to the unreachable. We've given you the benefit of the doubt on many dubious appointees. We've unflinchingly backed you in the GWoT and the battle of Iraq.

And, when it comes to the appointment we care about most, what do we get in return for our loyalty ? Harriet Frickin' Miers. Well, no more. Mr. President, you promised to nominate Justices in the mold of Scalia and Thomas. This nomination is in the mold of Souter and it will not stand. This is too important for any further benefit of the doubt. You deserve to lose this one. Thanks for nothing, a**hole.
