Reid blames extremists for Miers withdrawal

From the Associated Press...

Sen. Harry Reid blamed right-wing Republicans for killing Harriet Miers' nomination and urged President Bush to reject the demands "of a few extremists" in picking a new nominee to the Supreme Court.

"The radical right wing of the Republican Party killed the Harriet Miers nomination," the Senate Democratic leader from Nevada said Thursday.

"Apparently, Ms. Miers did not satisfy those who want to pack the Supreme Court with rigid ideologues," he said. "They want a nominee with a proven record of supporting their skewed goals."

Reid said he had recommended Bush consider Miers because he was impressed with her record of achievement at a major law firm in Texas, where she became the first female president of that state's bar association.

Okay, all together now...Right Harry, sure.
