Bush picks Miers: The Republican base is livid over this bit of cronyism, and with much justification. I would have thought Bush's political instincts would be better than this. A moderate candidate would have been enough to set the fire, but another long time insider is even worse.

That said, I know nothing about Miers' judicial capability and nothing about her past rulings, since there aren't any. So I can't say whether she'll be a good or conservative justice or not. I'm willing to wait and see. But it's a dumb political move either way.
