Utterly silly. But I re-state my position: I'd trust nine average Americans than nine legal whizzes any day, Vioxx be damned. I've served on juries, and can tell you that there's some pretty solid thinking that goes on there without a single law book. Funny thing, most of our Founders didn't have legal training---and certainly not of they type expected today. And gee, they only managed to write the Constitution. Yeah, we need some real eggheads up there. You've convinced me.

Oh yeah, Harriet Miers is the caliber of Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Hamilton, et. al. They'd laugh their asses off if they read Harriet's few ramblings. I'd be happy with a Thomas Sowell, or Victor Davis Hanson, or others out of the usual mold.

But please, don't insult us by claiming dumb is genius, and genius is dumb. Harriet Miers is a pedestrian choice, a disappointment. Like pinch hitting the bat boy for Barry Bonds. And please, I would no more trust 9 random citizens with my life than I'd play Russian Roulette with three in the chambers.

GW is a liberal on most issues that matter. And you want us to trust him with Miers?

Just keep repeating to yourself, dumb is smart, dumb is smart, and maybe even you will really believe that.
