Coulter Fires for Effect

The inimitable and invaluable Ann says what she thinks:

Between cooking segments on the "Today" show this week, Laura rolled out the straw man – sorry, "straw person" – argument that the criticism of Miers was rooted in "sexism" (which is such a chick thing to say).

I'm a gyno-American, and I strenuously object.

The only sexism involved in the Miers nomination is the administration's claim that once they decided they wanted a woman, Miers was the best they could do. Let me just say, if the top male lawyer in the country is John Roberts and the top female lawyer is Harriet Miers, we may as well stop allowing girls to go to law school.

As I recall, two-for-one Laura was clamoring for a female nominee back in July, prior to the Roberts nomination -- now that's sexist!

I don't believe there is any duty whatever to have the Supreme Court resemble the race/gender composition of the population at large anymore that I believe the NFL, NBA, MLB, or NHL should conform to those same ideas. How ridiculous would that be?

I am a female law student and believe the best person for the job should get the job -- period.
