A Mind That Suits
What doesn't kill me, makes me laugh... usually.

About the nomination of Harriet Miers to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, nearly all that can be said has been said by David Frum, excepting this:
There is about George W. Bush the air of the fighter pilot, which he once was. He has a strong desire to show that he is nobody's man but his own. The superlative choice of John Roberts as his first Supreme Court nominee showed that he knew how to pick a conservative so qualified as to force the Left to admit that the only reason they opposed him was that he did not bow before their stunted gods. Or before them, more to the point.
The bewildering choice of Harriet Miers is intended to show that W is in charge, and not the people who elected him.
