You are being too cute by a very large margin. “Some say that her SMU degree is a smudge in her makeup.”
I am sure that you can find “some” who have said anything that you want them to have said. I am reasonably confident that you could even find “some” who would say that this latest submission of yours makes sense, from an intellectually honest point of view.
Perhaps you could identify exactly which critics of Ms. Miers are slamming her for her SMU degree. Every candidate that I have seen touted in this current mess by the conservative side is a NON IVY LEAGUE graduate. That includes the male and female candidates, the minority and majority candidates.p>As far as saying that both sides are right in these diametrically opposed arguments, that is almost as silly as the nomination of Miers itself. You sound just like Ms. Miers, herself. Take two opposing sides of a debate, split the difference down the middle, and demand plaudits from both sides for your wisdom. The last person that got major plaudits for that tactic was written about in the Old Testament of the Bible. The only thing you do is to antagonize both sides and reveal yourself as too timid to make a decision. Stand in the middle of the road and see if you get hit from both directions, why don’t you. br> — Ken Shreve br> New Hampshire /p> p> Jay D.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
