If your post is example of what is to come, I expect this thread to reach new record levels of stupidity and hyperbole.

Some moderate (i.e., lukewarm) conservatives admonish the rest of us to hold our fire until Ms. Miers's performance at her hearing tells us more about her outlook on law, but any significant revelations are highly unlikely. She cannot be expected to endorse originalism; that would alienate the bloc of senators who think constitutional philosophy is about arriving at pleasing political results. What, then, can she say? Probably that she cannot discuss any issue likely to come before the court. Given the adventurousness of this court, that's just about every issue imaginable. What we can expect in all probability is platitudes about not "legislating from the bench." The Senate is asked, then, to confirm a nominee with no visible judicial philosophy who lacks the basic skills of persuasive argument and clear writing. --Robert Bork, "Slouching Towards Miers: Bush shows himself to be indifferent, if not hostile, to conservative values."

I expect this thread to reach new record levels of stupidity and hyperbole.

The other thread on this same article already reached the typical low for a Miers thread.
