54% of Republicans tell the other 17% on Miers - Shuddap!

Per the only poll that counts in my book, Scott Rasmussen, on the Miers nomination:

"October 13, 2005--Americans are evenly divided as to whether or not Harriet Miers should be confirmed to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. However, the latest Rasmussen Reports survey finds that 65% believe she is likely to be confirmed. Just 18% say that confirmation is not very likely or not at all likely.

Despite vocal opposition from many Republican activists, most Republicans across the county support the President's selection. Fifty-four percent (54%) of the GOP faithful say the President's nominee should be confirmed. Only 17% disagree.

Republicans supported the nomination of Chief Justice John Roberts by a 64% to 11% margin.

Contrary to popular opinion, the 'kids are alright!'

UPDATE: Drudge Report had a "Flash" up today:

"The DRUDGE REPORT has obtained a copy of sworn testimony given by Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers in 1989 in which she said that she “wouldn’t belong to the Federalist Society” – a conservative and libertarian lawyers’ organization – because it was “politically charged.”

Just a note. In 1989, The Federalist Society was a brand new organization and at that time was considered a politically charged "fringe group".

They are digging the bottom of the lake now.

What's next?

She fathered "Bat Boy"?

On to the Confirmation hearings already!

UPDATE: Read AJ Strata's new post on what might be behind the motives of at least one critic of Harriet - hmmmm, sour grapes?
