A Memo to the President: Part II

Note: A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post over at GunTotin' Liberal called Memo to the President. With the withdrawal of Harriet Miers this morning, another memo was needed:

It's me again, Mr. President. Don't know if you read my last memo. Kinda doubt it, but I do know alot of other folks did see it. Decided, with the news that Miss Miers has withdrawn, to write you again.

I'm thinkin' you may be mighty angry at us conservatives right now. Wouldn't blame you a bit. We sorta pulled the rug out from under you on this one. But I'm hoping your anger will shift to those who advised you on Harriet Miers, and most especially to those who vetted her in the first place. By now, you've read the speech she gave in 1993. That speech was pretty much the final nail in the coffin, but it was only one nail of many. She just wasn't the right choice, and I'm just relieved that both she and you finally realized that.

Mr. President, Conservatives have worked hard over the past thirty years to change the courts. You've been actively involved in that fight, right up to the nomination of Harriet Miers. It's time to do the right thing, to do the thing you promised again and again throughout the campaign. You promised to nominate a Supreme Court justice in the tradition of Scalia and Thomas. It's past time for you to do that. The withdrawal of Harriet Miers gives you an opportunity to do just that.
