This quote from a piece in the Washington Blade (gay mag) about Harriet Miers and her relationship with the gay community made me laugh out loud:
Mark Johnson, a past president of the Oregon State Bar Association and former co-chair of the National Lesbian & Gay Law Association, said he worked with Miers when the two served in leadership positions with the American Bar Association.
“She is a very nice person and seems quite fair-minded,” Johnson said. “Really, the fact that she is a personal friend of the president’s is the only thing about her that makes me question her judgment. I like her a lot and I’m very happy for her personally.”
Read the whole thing- bottom line- they don’t think she is a fire-breathing ideologue.
