The Spin of Harriet Miers

In her questionnaire, the description of the cases includes spin. If you know the case and the law you can recognize it. If not, you get an exaggerated impression.

There is nothing wrong with being a lawyer who represented clients in routine matters, or handling state court litigation. Harriet Miers should be proud of what she did.

But she exaggerates. She tries to make the routine matter seem special, and the state law issue seem to be a Federal Constitutional issue.

The whole White House campaign has been an exaggeration. Now Harriet Miers personally exaggerates.

Details later...
