New Supreme Court Nominee Less Qualified than Miers

From Holden:

Looks like Chimpy’s back-up pick for the Sumpreme Court is Sam Alito. But is this country ready for a Supreme Court justice who is less qualified thatn Harriet Miers?

Your President wouldn’t lie to you, would he?

Q Thank you, Mr. President. Mr. President, of all the people in the United States you had to choose from, is Harriet Miers the most qualified to serve on the Supreme Court?

THE PRESIDENT: Yes. Otherwise I wouldn’t have put her on.

Your President and First Lady wouldn’t lie to Matt Lauer, would they?

Q You said she [Harriet Miers] is the most qualified candidate for the job –

THE PRESIDENT: As I told you.

Q — would you agree with that?

MRS. BUSH: Absolutely. Absolutely.
