Questioned this morning (at a rare formal news conference) about Harriet Miers' qualifications, President Bush's rambling answers included these nuggets:
"She is plenty bright."
"She was a pioneer in Texas."
"She hasn't been one of these publicity hounds."
"She understands the law."
"I know her. I know her heart. I know what she believes."
"I know exactly the kind of judge she'll be."
Nice that someone knows, but will we ever find out? She thinks he's the most brilliant man she's ever met; he thinks she is a "plenty bright" person who "understands the law." This embarrassment is what passes in George W. Bush's America for a selection process for the highest court in the land.
