Uh-Oh!

The Harriet Miers nomination long ago turn a turn off of "Smooth Confirmation Lane" onto "Dead Man's Curve," and may be heading over the cliff to join poor jonnie and his motorcycle.

As you may recall James Dobson claimed to know things that he shouldn't know about the Miers nomination via Karl "the leak" Rove.

"When you know some of the things that I know--that I probably shouldn't know--you will understand why I have said, with fear and trepidation, that I believe Harriet Miers will be a good justice."

But wait, there is more. As reported by the Wall Street Journal, on the day of Bush's announcement of Harriet Miers nomination, James Dobson and other wingnuts were on a conference call that included two sitting Texas judges that assured the evangelical crowd that they knew that Harriet Miers would vote to overturn Roe v Wade.

Mr. Dobson and other religious conservatives held a conference call to discuss the nomination. One of the people on the call took extensive notes, which I have obtained. According to the notes, two of Ms. Miers's close friends--both sitting judges--said during the call that she would vote to overturn Roe.

The question now is: Who were those judges? How do they know her stance? And what will this do to any possible Democratic support she may have garnered over the last two weeks?

Good questions. That said, what is your take on he dem judges whio stood up for her?

I think that if their honest opinion of her is that she is qualified, they should say so. I have no problem with anyone on either side of the isle publically standing up and supporting her. So far, I have not seen anything that either qualifies her or disqualifies her.

I just don't like this back door "she has alredy decided to overturn choice" stuff going on. If you have something to say, share it with the entire class.

I agree- way too much being made by people who haven't a clue.
