President Bush Disqualifies Miers? *

* Made you look!

Article VI of the Constitution (emphasis added):

"The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."

So, does the fact that The Shrub has admitted that Harriet Miers' religion was a key reason for her selection effectively disqualify her for the Supreme Court?


While you're thinking about that, consider this rather interesting exchange where the White House, still used to being able to trot out the alleged "War on Terror", suddenly is confronted with journalists with bigger balls... which is scary, as one of them was female.
