The Kavanaugh Test 0
Ellie Mystal looks back at President George the Worst’s nomination of Harriet Miers to Supreme Court and has second thoughts about his opposing her confirmation. A snippet:
Now I think that I was wrong (about opposing Harriet Miers–ed.). Not about her jurisprudence, but about my distaste for her “qualifications.” Looking at it through the lens of Kavanaugh, Harriet Miers clears the very low bar of having never been accused of trying to rape somebody. She also didn’t go on Fox News or write self-serving op-eds in the Wall Street Journal, trying to drum up Republican-base support for her nomination. I don’t find any accusations that she lied under oath to Congress. I don’t find any accusations that she drunkenly got into a bar fight, or grew aggressive after losing a game of dice.
