George Will on Harriett Miers

What surprises me most about Will's recent, much-blogged about column is not its harsh tone and unremitting negativity over Miers' suitability for the bench.

It's the brutal honesty and frankness regarding W's, uhm, well, intellectual gifts:
He has neither the inclination nor the ability to make sophisticated
judgments about competing approaches to construing the Constitution. Few
presidents acquire such abilities in the course of their pre-presidential
careers, and this president particularly is not disposed to such

It appears that disdain for this nomination has freed many true conservatives to finally say what they really feel about their so-called standard bearer.
