Almost taken in...
I am stunned by what I have just read: http://harrietmiers.blogspot.com/ purports to be Harriet Miersí personal blog. For a good 4.5 seconds, I was taken in. And I was stunned by the numerous misspellings and grammatical errors in the blog. Then there was the content. I was thinking that this person was so stupid so as to question my President for ever having hired her in any capacity. Then I wised up.
The blog is a parody and a hoax. From its header: "The blog of the #1 smartest President everís [sic] #1 pick to be the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court! SENATORS WELCOME!!! or if your [sic] a voter, CALL YOUíRE [sic] SENATOR AND SAY VOTE FOR ME [sic]!!! 202-225-3121" The grammatical and spelling errors appear to be intentional.
I would like to congratulate this impersablogger (I have now come one step closer to having done it all, having coined a new word in the English Language). The Harriet Miers blog site is most certainly hilarious. I canít stop laughing when I visit it! I owe Michelle Malkin a big "thank you" for the link to this hilarious winner of a site. I may not agree with its premise, but I can certainly see the hard work that went into such a side-splitting web destination.
Aside from that, I must say that the Senate Questionnaire issue is something that is starting to raise my concern level with this nomination. Making major constitutional law mistakes, including the presumption of a legal maxim that does not exist, worries me. I am watching this nomination much more closely.
