The Left Coaster On Top Of Miers Nomination

If there's another blog more comprehensively on top of the Harriet Miers nomination than The Left Coaster, I'd like to hear about it!

In just a little over 24 hours, Eriposte at The Left Coaster – who I was fortunate enough to meet at a BBQ hosted by Dave “Seeing the Forest” Johnson in the Bay Area on Friday – has posted a wonderful piece that gives the full scoop on Miers.

For example, lest you think that Miers is the second coming of Ted Kennedy because she donated to Al Gore in 1988, the article points out that she kicked in money to the Bush-Cheney recount fund that helped steal the presidential election in 2000. It also reveals that, while she did indeed contribute to Gore at one time, she has given far more to Republicans and has donated only to conservative causes since.

With all the scattered news, rumors and conjecture flying around about this nomination, this is a must-read if you want a documented rundown on what Harriet Miers is all about.
