Harriet Needs Remedial Training

Today it was revealed that Senate confirmation hearings, which had tentatively been set to begin on November 7, now may be delayed. It seems that Harriet Miers needs some time to "hit the books" before she will be prepared to face the Judiciary Committee. Senator Chuck Schumer has said that Miers needs "some time to learn" about key constitutional cases. Judiciary chairman Senator Arlen Specter says "It is unfair to start the hearings before she's ready."

What? Harriet needs some time to learn about constitutional law? Give me a break. We're talking about a nominee to the Supreme Court, not a new check-out person at Target. This news once again only bolsters the case that conservatives should be calling for Miers' withdrawal by signing the "Keep Your Promise" petition.

I think that you are absolutly correct. She should not be starting to study now, she should already have all this stuff down if she is going to try to get into supreme court justise. I hope you don't mind that I'm using you as a current event in my civics class.
