Many on the right are complaining that Harriet Miers is not sufficiently ideological. But Vice President Cheney, for his part, is trying to sell Miers as another Scalia or Thomas. Here is Cheney today on Sean Hannity’s radio show:
HANNITY: So in that sense, the President’s promise, you believe, has been fulfilled, and that is that she fits the mold of a Scalia and a Thomas?
CHENEY: I do.
Cheney added that Bush didn’t pick Myers to avoid controversy: “He’s not a President who avoids a fight — he likes a good fight.”
