The First Lady Speaks Out On Miers (Says Miers Critics are Sexist)

COVINGTON, Louisiana (Reuters) - First lady Laura Bush joined her husband in defending his nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday and said it was possible some critics were being sexist in their opposition to Harriet Miers.

"That's possible, I think that's possible," Mrs. Bush said when asked on NBC's "Today Show" whether criticism that Miers lacked intellectual heft were sexist in nature. She said Miers' accomplishments as a lawyer made her a role model to young women. […] "Just because she hasn't served on the bench, doesn't mean that she can't be a great Supreme Court judge," said Bush, whose job approval ratings have sagged below 40 percent for the first time ever in recent polls.

Yes Mrs. Bush, that is true, she is very accomplished. So is Judge Judy, but we are not trying to put her on the highest court in the land, and she even served as a judge. Please, lets leave the attack dog politics of this to those that get paid for it, you are much better at the niceness of the verge of surreal.
