Transparency and the Anti-Miers Secret Society.
Here is the link to a September 29 post by David that did warn of the downside of a Miers nomination, a link that must be read in tandem with David’s first posting on Miers which many have read as David’s endorsement of Miers mid-summer.
But here’s the key part of today’s interview: David’s new group has raised $300,000 to camapaign against Miers on television and radio, from “two dozen” donors who will not reveal their names.
In a stroke is legitimated all the attack tactics of the left-wing groups against so many decent men and women beginning with Robert Bork. Our side has now picked up the weapon of the left. It will be difficult for the argument to be mounted effectively in the future that such tactics are illegitimate in the context of judicial nominations.
Now, two off-topic posts. Blogotional on the depressing facts of jury service and American attachment to the rule of law.
And an uplifting post from the Naval Academy’s Professor David Allen White on what college students who don’t read should read anyway.
