Bench Memos

NRO’s home for judicial news and analysis.



Let’s be clear about something re the Miers appointment and the arguments of some of her advocates: it’s not sexist to oppose quotas in the judicial selection process, it’s not elitist to demand excellence from nominees to the Supreme Court, it’s not a virtue to promise voters justices in the mold of Scalia and Thomas and then fail to deliver, and it’s not disloyal to the president to raise legitimate questions about a nominee’s untraceable judicial philosophy.
