Steyn On Meirs

(Hat Tip: Puppy Blender)

For what it's worth, my sense is that Harriet Miers will be, case by case, a more reliable vote against leftist judicial activism than her mercurial predecessor, Sandra Day O'Connor. Why do I say this? Well, she's a strong supporter of the right to bear arms. The great Second Amendment expert Dave Kopel says you have to go back to Louis Brandeis 90 years ago to find a Supreme Court justice whose pre-nomination writings extol gun rights as fulsomely as Miers. According to an old boyfriend, Judge Nathan Hecht of the Texas Supreme Court, she packs heat -- a Smith & Wesson .45 -- which I can say with certainty the other lady justice, the far-left Ruth Bader Ginsburg, never has. She also's personally very opposed to abortion.

Steyn's take is a reliable conservative vote. Which do we want, a bloodbath, knock-down drag-out fight with the Donkeyrats, or a solid conservative vote on the Court?

OK, let me rephrase that.Which do we want, a rhetorical bloodbath, knock-down drag-out fight with the Donkeyrats, or a solid conservative vote on the Court? If we could have a meatworld mixup, well...
