Conservative pundits not pleased with Miers

I haven't had much time to peruse SCOTUS nominee Harriet Miers' resume. The reaction from some prominent conservative sources is amusing though.

From the piece over at Think Progress:

American Spectator Blog: " There is now talk of among some conservatives about a filibuster of the Miers nomination.
...According to several White House sources, few inside the building took the possibility of a Miers nomination seriously. Now that it's a reality, they are stunned. `We passed up Gonzales for this?' was one conservative staffer's reaction."

What seems to be emerging about Miers is that she's a Bush loyalist with no experience as a judge. Folkbum found this gem from National Review's David Frum:

"In the White House that hero worshipped the president, Miers was distinguished by the intensity of her zeal: She once told me that the president was the most brilliant man she had ever met."

This one could get interesting.
