First Thoughts on Miers...

Dear Congressman,

The appointment to the Supreme Court is not an appoitment to the Executive Branch. Just as election to the Congress and Senate is not a question of advice and consent to the pResident's whims.

Appointment to the Supreme Court is not a question of this pResident appointing someone for HIS term period but a "lifetime" appointment.

It is not question here of "advice and consent" at all. It is an equal responsibility of the Senate (and Congress) to determine the suitability.

The Committee that interviewed John Roberts was a "miserable failure". They rolled over hardly understanding the role they were supposed tö play. They were grandstanding!

I hope that you will play a lead role in pointing out that this is not a case of "Advice and Consent" AT ALL. It is a question of choosing a "qualified" individual for this job. Even a waiter in a restaurant has to have some qualifications as otherwise you have another "Brownie" in this office.
