The nomination of Harriet Miers for Supreme Court Justice is just one more in a long line of examples demonstrating George Bush's love for the mediocre. He is clearly intimidated by excellence. As he coasted through Yale with his gentleman's C's he probably laughed at the "geeks" who got A's and studied. His life since he entered the working world--if such a term is applicable in his case--furthers this view; bumbling, inept business ventures, every step of the way aided by cronies, his embracing the average. It is one thing if he himself is not too smart and can't speak in complete sentences, but now he wants the country to be run by those who share his limited capacity.
