Group close to Jerry Falwell is OPPOSING Harriet Miers' nomination

As Tinky Winky would say...


Liberty Counsel, a conservative legal advocacy group with close ties to the Rev. Jerry Falwell, announced Tuesday that it is opposing Harriet Miers’ nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court....

"...selecting a nominee who has held her views in silence for 60 years sends a wrong message to conservatives - if you want to be appointed to the federal bench, you should keep your views to yourself. That’s a terrible message to send to our future leaders.”
Yes, but it's the message Bush is sending, and frankly most of the religious right is sending. They know Americans (including most Republicans) can't stand them, that America doesn't support their extremist views (like butting themselves into the Terri Schiavo debate), and as a result the religious right and its political cronies in the GOP are simply terrified to publicly say what they really want - a Supreme Court justice who will overturn Roe v. Wade. They won't say it. And Bush won't say it. Why? Because they don't even have the courage of their own convictions. And that's because they know they don't represent real Americans.

Deny me three times...
