Sycophancy to the sitting president should disqualify

Stuart Taylor has come up with a wickedly effective way of framing the Harriet Miers argument—that her comment (made to David Frum when he worked at the White House) “that the president was the most brilliant man she had ever met” creates a rebuttable presumption that she is not qualified for the Supreme Court, an independent branch of the government. The comment also creates a rebuttable presumption that she lacks the intelligence to be on the Supreme Court.
