    Let's avoid kidding ourselves, shall we? Democrats aren't going to defeat Miers. They know the only liberal under consideration was Alberto Gonzales, the guy they used to argue that maybe Hussein wasn't so bad, as if a few humiliating photographs compared to the physical torture, starvation or execution of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi dissidents. (Man, those Democrats must've been scarred earlier in their lives. Memo to self: Don't join a fraternity that allows hazing but is "tolerant" of deviant sexual practices.) No, Harriet Miers was the best they could hope for. Sure they're afraid she MIGHT be conservative --...

    My "Dear George" Letter Sorry, George, but you lost me at Harriet. When a reporter asked you Oct. 4 if Harriet Miers was the most qualified possible candidate for the U.S. Supreme Court and you answered, "Yes ţ I picked the best person I could find" ‹ and you did it with a straight face ‹ that was it. I'm done. Check, please! I'm outta here. I am no longer a George W. Bush supporter. As a conservative, I have been bitch-slapped by this man for the last time. Those suffering from "Battered Conservative's Syndrome" will no doubt make excuses...

    Okay, lets say for a moment that Miers winds up voting with Scalia and Thomas. Let's also say that she is qualified. Let's also forget about the fact that cronyism played a part here. She could wind up being a great justice. The one thing I still cannot get around is why Bush and his people would be willing to risk this all on someone who is already 60 years old!!! Does anyone else on here, besides all the other reasons against her, see a problem with her age (then again if she winds up being a bad justice, we'll...

    Wikipedia is an online, user-editable encyclopedia located at en.wikipedia.org/wiki . It has untold thousands of articles, and, unlike paper encyclopedias, it can immediately cover current events. Alexa says it's the 49th most popular web site, so it has a good deal of influence. In reading through some entries, I'm struck by a certain "liberal" bias. Examples can be found in the entries for Bill Bennett, Mike Malloy and other Air America hosts, Media Matters for America, the Minuteman Project, U.S. Immigration, and many others. Thankfully, there's something you can do about this. WP entries can be written and edited by...
