David Frum has slagged the Miers pick pretty hard, but Air America's Ben Wikler finds that Frum must've thought better of the following additional dig, which he apparently posted and then quickly pulled:
She rose to her present position by her absolute devotion to George Bush. I mentioned last week that she told me that the president was the most brilliant man she had ever met. To flatter on such a scale a person must either be an unscrupulous dissembler, which Miers most certainly is not, or a natural follower. And natural followers do not belong on the Supreme Court of the United States.
Weird personal angle: It turns out Miers is the aunt of an old family friend—a kid born a few days apart from me with whom I used to have birthdays with every year as a tot.
