The Miers Test For Pundits

As anyone reading my Miers posts know I am not impressed by the emotional backlash from the conservative punditry. I have explained my reasoning here and here – and feel vindicated that the outburst is isolated to those too close to the issues because of this poll. But regardless of all this, a simple test […]

Poll Shows Miers Support

Mark Coffey has linked to a poll which is great new for Miers and Bush, and a clear warning to conservative, whining pundits that are wringing their hands over Miers: Asked to rate Bush’s nomination of Miers, 44 percent of those polled described it as excellent or good, while 41 percent said it was fair […]

Call To Coalition of The Chillin’
