Underwhelming

Why Harriet Miers?
This underwhelming nomination seems to reflect (1) Bush's current political weakness and (2) his propensity to reward loyalty. As Atrios points out, she is not a nominee who will lead any triumphalist parades. Her's is not what one would call a legacy nomination meant to put Bush's stamp on the Court.
No spicy wingnuts here: Miers has all the excitement of a chicken casserole at a potluck supper.
