Beldar for the Defense

by Jonathan H. Adler

Beldar has several posts defending Harriet Miers and critiquing some of her critics. See here, here, and here. I don’t agree with every point he makes, but there’s quite a bit in his posts to chew on – and quite a bit that demonstrates many of Miers’ critics are making bad (if not simply false) arguments against her. I remain convinced that Miers was not the best choice, but I do not think there are sufficient, or even reasonable, grounds for seeking her defeat in the Senate at this time.
