MIERS TO TAKE CONLAW 101 - Given Hearings Mulligan!
In a further indication that the Miers high-court nomination is floundering, Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pennsyltucky) announced that Miers "needs a crash course in constititonal law." Specter, in giving Miers this unprecedented mulligan , said:
"I did not ask her about it because I don't think she's ready to face it at the moment. Look, the lady was White House counsel dealing with totally other subjects until Sunday night when the president offered her the job. ... I'm not going to ask her questions which she hasn't had a chance to study or reflect on."
So to help out, any reader who went to law school should immediately send their old ConLaw books. I am sure that my own Barron volume (penned by Jerome Barron, et al., my personal ConLaw hero) is somewhere in storage. Send them to Harriet E. Miers Esq. at the White House.
