More on Miers

More evidence is brought that Miers is not a conservative:

In the Corner, Stanley Kurtz links to a report on Miers showing her "progressive stances" as a legislator. He correctly notes her disdain for the Federalist Society as an indicator of her true feelings on jurisprudence.

On Bench Memos, in a post that has gotten attention throughout the blogosphere (see here, here, and here), Richard Garnett expands on Miers' disdain for the Federalist Society and says that if true, it seriously undercuts her claim to be a conservative.

National Review has been doing a good job. But no one seems more out in front of this issue than Professor Bainbridge, who has been blogging a storm about Miers. He compiles all of his criticism to date in a long blog post, mentioning the Wall Street Journal piece I linked to below, and linking to all of his other posts on the matter.

UPDATE: Now the Democrats are defending Miers from conservatives. With friends like that, who needs enemies?
