Harriet Miers

Harriet Miers and George Bush, still from an AP video

For a couple of minutes, I had a post up about Harriet Miers, the new Supreme Court nominee, being a board member of Exodus Ministries. According to Law Dork, via Wonkette, this is not the "Freedom from homosexuality through the healing power of Jesus Christ" organization, but a Dallas based-organization which "seeks to encourage ex-offenders, to reunite them with their families, and to empower them to become self-sustaining, productive, Christ-centered members of society." No word yet on what they do with non-Christian ex-cons.

Still, this is one of the least qualified people I have seen in a while being nominated. The employment section of the Washington Post story is pretty underwhelming:

Experience: 2004-present, White House counsel; 2003-2004, White House deputy chief of staff for policy; 2001-2003, White House staff secretary; 1995-2001, chairwoman, Texas Lottery Commission; 1972-2000, private law practice; 1992, president, Dallas Bar Association; 1989-1991, member, Dallas City Council; 1985, president, Dallas Bar Association.

According to Atrios, even some right-wingers thing she's a joke.

James heard about the nomination today and said, "She can't possibly get approved." My response was, "Justice Thomas. There is nothing you can't get on the Supreme Court these days."

No thing? Don't you mean no one? Because the way you have it written now sounds like the 3/5 Compromise.
