THE CLOCK IS TICKING…

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 27, 2005 08:56 AM

…on the Harriet Miers SCOTUS nomination. My post last night noted some ominous signs. This morning, the New York Sun has more: At least two Republican senators are poised to call on the White House to withdraw the nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court, a highly placed Republican Senate staffer told The New […]

THE DOG ATE MY QUESTIONNAIRE…AND OTHER SIGNS OF COLLAPSE?

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 26, 2005 10:00 PM

***updated…Wash Times reports Leonard Leo quitting pro-Miers lobbying effort*** SCOTUS nominee Harriet Miers was supposed to turn in more detailed questionnaire responses to the Senate Judiciary Committee today. Kathryn Lopez reports that as of 8pm EDT tonight, Miers had failed to turn in her answers. Hmmm. Meanwhile, there have been some significant shifts to the […]

SEN. HUTCHISON'S BLUNDER

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 23, 2005 11:28 PM

The Left had a field day over Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison’s remarks on NBC’s Meet the Press this morning in which she downplayed possible perjury and obstruction of justice indictments this week in the Rove/Plame/Miller/Libby/God-knows-who-else leak case. I watched the rebroadcast of the show tonight and have to say that I found Hutchison’s pooh-poohing more […]

THE TROUBLE WITH HARRIET

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 20, 2005 08:39 AM

I have stayed away from the depressing and divisive subject of Harriet Miers for a few days. It was a healthy little respite. But things have taken yet another grim, embarrassing turn–and it is becoming increasingly difficult to imagine that this nomination will make it to the scheduled Nov. 7 Senate hearing date. First, if […]

HARRIET MIERS VERSION 2.0

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 17, 2005 04:50 AM

Remember that old phrase, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression?” Well, the Bush White House has tossed the truism out the window and is rebranding SCOTUS nominee Harriet Miers–now with less religious flavor and more judicial filling! I would dearly like this strategy to work and for President Bush’s promises […]

LAURA INGRAHAM ON MIERS

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 11, 2005 11:26 PM

Laura was on Hannity & Colmes tonight making some of the most cogent, non-sexist, and non-elitist arguments against Harriet Miers I’ve seen and heard over the last excruciating week. Watch the whole thing at The Political Teen (thanks, Ian). I’m with Miniter: Laura Ingraham for SCOTUS! 😉

MRS. BUSH & THE SEXISM CARD

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 11, 2005 03:00 PM

So, the First Lady pulled out the sexism card in her defense of Harriet Miers on NBC’s Today Show. Matt Lauer lapped it up. Did the White House not inform Mrs. Bush that some of the most vocal criticism and questioning of the nomination comes from conservative women? Or does she buy into the Left’s […]

MIERS: BEWARE

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 10, 2005 08:14 AM

Check out John Hawkins’ poll of conservative bloggers on the Miers nomination. Negative sentiment and uncertainty predominate. Compare with the Washington Times’ survey of Republican senators–nearly half of whom say they, too, remain unconvinced that Harriet Miers is worthy of being confirmed to the Supreme Court. And read John Fund (go ahead, White House, call […]

MIERS: WEEKEND ROUNDUP

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 9, 2005 04:16 PM

I have answered the White House’s call for energy conservation…by conserving my energy and laying off the Harriet Miers nomination for a brief spell. In the meantime, read Ed Morrissey’s excellent piece in the Washington Post about the rift on the right. Ed has additional thoughts and a round-up of reax to his piece here. […]
