    Petulant Right

    The right’s problem is with him, not her

    Harriet Miers is the whipping boy for Bush’s mistakes

  4. Intellectual Gravitas

    Here’s the thing: Let’s say that Miers is a committed conservative, and has a conservative judicial philosophy. Let’s also say that she would vote the “right” way every time on every issue of significance (i.e. upholdin…

    ?God told me? – I hope Bush was Misquoted

    Recall that the last time Bush was quoted as saying ?God wants me to be President?, the press got it wrong. Now we have Palestinian Prime Minister Abbas quoting Bush as saying According to Abbas, immediately thereafter Bush said: “God

  8. Debate Space says:

    This is no liberal bias

    Dadmanly and BW revive Debate Space with an initial debate on liberal bias. Canadian BW says there isn’t one, that the bias is towards the sensational, while Dadmanly says there sure is liberla bias!

    A Letter to My Son

    Mrs. Dadmanly shared with me some questions our son has been asking, and they’re the kind of questions a Mom or a Dad sometimes might have trouble with, but we know they are very, very important.

  15. It’s not overmedicating if you really need the medicine

  16. Harriet Miers: thumbs down (for now)

    I will keep an open mind through the hearings, but for now I am hopeful that the Senate will not confirm her.

    As a moderate, I should probably rejoice that Bush did not nominate a fire-breathing conservative for the position. But I can’t get past o…
