BOUNCING BACK



I've done alot of thinking over the last few days and you know what? I really do think this worked out as good as it possibly could have. No, I won't be a Justice. But then again most people are never a Justice, even really successful people. I learned alot about the Supreme Court, I learned alot about "Blogging"--and I learned alot about myself.

So, I'm turning my blog back to its natural state... guess which color... Pink!! And I might not post as often now. But I will definately read comments and stay on email and everything so stay in touch.

Also I've been thinking about, what if they say "Hey, Harriet would've actually been great!! Lets get her again." How would I answer. Well you know what, this may surprise you, but my answer would actually be no! I've always had a philosophy of, "Judge not or you'll be judged yourself." And here I was thinking about being a judge full-time. Not a good fit.

In closing, I hope I can be an inspiration to other nominees in the future. God bless America (and the Blogosphere!!).

Love,

HARRIET

XOXOXOXOX

WOW I FEEL LOVED

You know how when people die, they have a funeral and all they're friends come, and its like, "hey if only they'd known how everyone cared about them when they were still alive"? Well this is like that!! I really want to thank everyone for all of the support and Kind Words. I have so much to be thankful for. And, last night I was bowling and got three strikes in a row...maybe I should get withdrawn more often! LOL But seriously it warms my heart. I'll be okay.

Also some people have been asking about my reaction to the Scooter stuff... well I don't know where you're from but in AMERICA, there's a little thing called "abstinent until proven guilty."

UPDATE: OMG I meant "innocent"... [RED FACE] maybe I do need to take some time off

TECHNICAL QUESTION

I have to help figure out who the next nominee is... I know, sucks... so here's a question. Can you nominate John Roberts for Associate Justice, so he'd get two votes on the SCOTUS? He was a really good nominee last time.

THANK-YOU NOTE

Dear Supporters.

This is obv a really hard day for me, I was super excited about being a Justice. I was looking at my very first blog post and it made me cry. But this day isn't about me. Its about all of us. And I have to say... Thank You.

Of course I have to start with a thank you to Hugh. Hugh Hewitt. Hugh your the best!! Here's what Hugh wrote today,
Ms. Miers deserves great thanks for her significant service to the country.
Same to you!! Your simply the greatest.

Thank you to everyone who writes comments on this blog, Mike Sparkle Judy Gyrobo Bob Liz Ah Patrick EVERYONE, you know who you are. You are my BFF, for real.

Thank you to Nicolle...its the Silver Lining that I get to stay in the WH and work with you again. Your the BEST!!

But Most Of All...

THANK YOU MR. PRESIDENT. I know this wasn't you're decision any more than it was mine...but guess what, we're going to STICK TOGETHER just like always!!

Its a pleasure to serve you sir, now and always.

I'll never forget being the Nominee, it was a learning experience at the very least.

Always remember. Follow you're heart.

Love,



PS to everyone who has written in saying I should do a Write-In Campaign, thanx, I don't want to rule anything out right now but its probably a No-Go. (If your a senator please email me, I need advice about this.)

WIP (WITHDRAW IN PEACE), ME, NOMINEE 10/3/05 - 10/27/05



Thanx reader GS for this quote.

"Its better to have been nominated and withdrawn then never to have been nominated at all"
- Unknown, adapted (obv)

Update, reader HH sent this, it means alot to me.

And it seems to me you lived your nomination
Like a candle in the wind:
Never fading with the sunset
When the rain set in.

Goodbye Texas Rose,
From a country lost without your soul,
Who'll miss the wings of your compassion
More than you'll ever know.

Thank you so much to everyone whose writing.

THE WAIT IS OVER...ITS THE BIG DAY!!!

Everyone in DC is tense with anticipation...well folks the WAIT IS OVER!! Remember, you heard it here first... I TURNED IN MY REVISED QUESTIONNAIRE!!!

UPDATE: HARRIET MIERS EXCLUSIVE!! MUST CREDIT HARRIET MIERS!!! ...thx reader AC, I didn't know that was the "netiquette."

UPDATE II, 10:47 PM ET: OMG OMG, how could I be so dumb...
the Senate Judiciary Committee has yet to recieve its updated questionnaire from nominee Harriet Miers We're told it'll get to them around 11 p.m. ET. Said NY Sen. Chuck Schumer in a statement at 8:45 pm: "This is another in a series of disappointments. The Miers nomination is suffering from a serious bout of delay, distraction, and disorganization and needs a dramatic turnaround."

I TURNED IN THE WRONG THING!! I'm not sure what was in those envelopes, maybe my taxes or something (yes, double extension and I'm still late, I've been busy OK!!)...but I was checking the blogs and I saw this and my heart went through the floor, the questionnaire's sitting on my desk. How could I be so dumb. Did Warren Burger ever do this?!! GRHRGGGG

GOTTA RUN, 13 MINUTES LEFT

ANNOUNCING...

WithdrawWithdrawMiers.org!!

Its a petition!! Please sign it, I already did. Here's what it says.
Dear Whom It May Concern, in this case WithdrawMiers.org,

Hi! Its "The Undersigned." Here's the basic message, PLEASE TAKE DOWN YOU'RE WEB SITE. WithdrawMiers.org.

Here are SOME of the reasons why:

> It is NOT NICE, which means you shouldn't say anything at all.
> Its a Waste of Space on the Internet--crowded enough already, esp w/ everyone having a Livejournal!
> Harriet Miers is the only nominee we've got, so "love the one your with." The Supreme Court can't exist if there aren't Justices on it. This is really two reasons.
> Hi, this is a personal message from Harriet, not the whole Undersigned. It would mean a lot to me personally if you took it down, like as a personal favor. I am not the type to promise to rule different for different people, but if you do the right thing please know I won't forget it.
> Okay its all of us again. Honestly we can't believe you even put it up!!! But its past history now, the important thing is the future, please withdraw it.

So those are the reasons... Thanx!!

Sincerely, The Undersigned
So there you go!! I hope "you" will join "we the undersigned" and tell you're friends, because remember... there's no way a petition can be OVERsigned!!!

WE CAN DO IT!!

PS As you can see, there's a logo on the right, but if you make a better one please send it to me and I'll use it for sure. Also FYI you can go to www.withdrawwithdrawmiers.org, it comes right here.

VIDEO!!

I think this is just great!!
Its from HarrietFanSRO (no website, sorry). THANK YOU!! XOX H

UPDATE 10/27--I took down the video its not appropriate anymore.

PATRICK FITZGERALD BLOG??

Is it real. How do you find out.

CALL YOU'RE SENATORS ENTRIES

Andy said not to blog but this is important, because I really believe that a Grass Roots "Call You're Senators" movement is the best hope. So real quick here's the rest of the entries. THANKS to everyone who sent them in!!!

This first one is from Shangri-Law Blog, and its dedicated to a good cause... Uncle Sam!


This logo is from from reader Ross McDevitt, see if you can get the reference!! Hint, its a movie.



Here is a logo from Jake Reif. I think my picture looks weird, like an Optical Illusion. Lovely writing tho. Thanks JR!


This one seems good until you look closely...it gets my blog wrong! And my name. So you cant vote for it, its really more an example of "what NOT to do." But its too late, the contest is over.


Here's a special one... Halloween Alert! "Scary-et Miers"!!

CONTEST RULES...ADVICE PLZ

Hi from Questionnaire-istan...I'm trying to make up my mind about something. Does video count for the contest. The problem is that when I made the rules at the beginning, I didn't anticipate this situation. The original rules were just:
I need you're help to make a logo. It should have a picture of me, the name of the campaign (CALL YOU'RE SENATORS!!) and my name (Harriet Miers duh!!), and 202-225-3121.
So most people just sent in pictures, but one person sent in a video, which I love, but is it unfair to everyone else because they didn't know a video is okay? I think if I'd thought about it at the time I would have said "no video," b/c my intent originally was just pictures. But now that things have changed I want to add video. I don't want to be unfair. WHAT DO I DO!!!

This is driving me nuts, its totally distracting me from preparing to be a Supreme Court Justice!!

CONTEST...PROCRASTINATING, DON'T TELL LEONARD

Hi everyone! OK I'm not supposed to be blogging, I have to work on my Murder Boards and my Questionnaire (and might I add, its going to be the best questionnaire ever , I should apologize to future nominees for setting such a high precedent! J/K LOL... if only...) . Anyway I'm taking a short break just have to remind you, today is the deadline for the Call You're Senators logo contest. You probably thought I forgot... no way Jose, I'm a nominee of my word!! Also I should explain about "Don't Tell Leonard," Leonard Leo is in charge of keeping me On Task. He's basically a lawyer.

Here are some of the most recent submissions. If you sent one and you don't see you're's (??) here, it means it didn't "make the cut." Either that or I haven't opened you're email yet. Basically if you haven't gotten a reply back from me I haven't seen you're email yet, there's alot. I'd just like to say up front, way to go to EVERYONE who sent one in, A+ for effort and A++ for creativity!!

Here's a few of the current batch. I don't know how to make it so that the writing goes right next to the logo, so my comments might be hard to understand, please bear with me.



As you can see, some of these are done in the "classic style." Very nice!!



In one I have a really big head, well I hope that's not a joke about being the nominee "going to my head" LOL





As you can see one of them is really creative, just like Anne Geddes. I don't want to bias you're votes but I think that one would not be appropriate in terms of me being taken serious as a Nominee.

As far as the one that says "Ignite... desire," its beautiful!! And it makes you want to learn more.

All in all, nice work!! There's more where these came from, I'll post as soon as I can. Just a reminder, if your still planning to submit (and I hope certain people are!!), the final deadline is tonight (Friday) at midnight, no exceptions. Now what if your on the West Coast. Good question. It doesn't make any diffarence, for you the contest started three hours earlier!!! Nice try tho...

Okay GO FOR IT!! Back to "Q-ville," population HARRIET!!!!

UPDATE: One of these says 1-900-HARRIET, that's NOT the real number, the number on it has to be fixed or its disqualified. Good catch reader HH.

GREAT DO-OVERS IN HISTORY

Well by now you probably know that I have to "take a mulligan" on my questionnaire. Well my answer is bring it on!! Its like I've always said. There's no shame in getting something wrong the first time, the only shame is giving up!!! I may not get a Hole In One but a birdy is pretty good I'd say!

With that in mind, I made this list of great do-overs from history to cheer me up. Maybe it will cheer you up too!!

XOX HARRIET
  • The first pyramid was TOO SMALL. Did the Egyptions give up. No! They went ahead and made another one, plus a sphinx!!
  • Richard Nixon wasn't elected president the first time he ran. Either did President George HW Bush. But you know what they had in common. They took a mulligan and won!!!
  • Here's one thats particularly relevant to me: Dred Scott Decision. Alot of people dont realize but sometimes the Supreme Court makes a mistake, I've been reading about it, and then they can go back and overturn it. Just like my questionnaire!!
  • As my friends know, I'm not just a golf lover I'm also a bowler. Well bowling is the perfect example... even if you get a gutter ball the first time, you still have another ball in the frame and you can get a spare!
And needless to say, this is an INCOMPLETE list!! There's tons more, but obv I have to get to work on the questionnaire. Thanx everyone for you're letters of support!

IF I WERE A JUSTICE

Okay first here’s some background. Especially if your wondering why its been so long since my last post. I was trying to put into words my thoughts about Specter and the 1989 questionnaire and everything, and honestly if I hear Roe V Wade one more time I'm going to announce that I'll just recuse myself. (Just kidding its important obv). And then I started to write a poem but it kept coming out really dumb. And then I had an idea for a song, like the Fiddler on the Roof song except it’d be “Abortion!” –but it’s a Hot Button Issue and I don’t want to be offensive. Also I couldn’t remember the tune.

Anyway the point is, I wrote this song, it goes to the tune of If I Were A Rich Man (which I’m not!!!).
If I were a justice
Ya ha deedle deedle bubba bubba deedle deedle dum
In my robes I’d biddy biddy bum
If I were a high court judge!
I’d… be a super jurist!!
Ya ha deedle deedle bubba bubba deedle deedle dum
If I were bum biddy bum confirmed
Yiddle-diddle to the Supreme Court.

I’d sign opinions with a heart on the “I”
Correcting old decisions that were wrong
But I’d never legislate from the bench!!!
And even tho I’d be the most junior justice
They’d make me feel like I belong
Especially that Souter, he’s a mensch!

If I were a justice
Ya ha deedle deedle bubba bubba deedle deedle dum
In my robes I’d biddy biddy bum
If I were a high court judge!
I’d… be a super jurist!!
Ya ha deedle deedle bubba bubba deedle deedle dum
If I were bum biddy bum confirmed
Yiddle-diddle to the Supreme Court.
PS Thanx Jack A for the “mensch” line but remember your not supposed to call the WH!! WE MISS YOU!!

CALL YOU'RE SENATORS CAMPAIGN--CONTEST!!

Hi everyone!! I'm really excited!!! Here's why, I realized that its no use waiting around, its time to Make This Happen and you can help!! If you want something done you have to do it yourself, and so I'm asking for everyone to join in.

Announcing... the Call You're Senators campaign.

Step one is, I need you're help to make a logo. It should have a picture of me, the name of the campaign (CALL YOU'RE SENATORS!!) and my name (Harriet Miers duh!!), and 202-225-3121. Email the logo to me, harriet.miers at gmail.com. (at = @.) I'll put the submissions on my blog and have a Vote, best logo wins! After all its a democracy!! Here is an example I made.
Step two is we get everyone to post the logo and Spread the Word, and step three is I'm confirmed!!! Thats how it works in America, you have to have your voice heard if you want to have a say.

Okay ready, set, design a logo for the Harriet Miers Call You're Senators campaign!!!11

UPDATE: Good idea reader BB, its a Slogan Contest too. It doesn't have to be Call You're Senators. What should the slogan be?? Post in comments or email! We can do this!!!

NEW YORKER STORY ON BLOG...PRETTY GOOD

So the New Yorker did a story the blog, with an interview we did on IM. And to be honest I was worried about how it would come out (BIAS). But now that its here I think its pretty good!! I've been doing Murder Boards for the hearings and I applied some lessons to the interview, like making sure you get out you're core message. Guess what my core message was.
Dallasharriet44: Do I get to see the story early? I PROMISE I won’t blog it.

Talk Of The Town: In a word, no.

Harriet Miers: O.K., then I won’t tell you how I’m going to rule in cases that come before the Court. [NOTE: THIS WAS A RUSE, I WOULDN'T HAVE REALLY TOLD HIM. - H]

Talk Of The Town: Bye, Harriet (a.k.a. Ms. Maybe-Our-Next-Female-SC-Justice!).

Harriet Miers: Well, I have to say, New York gets a bum rap—you’re a good ambassador! Unless you’re “the exception that proves the rule.” Thanks!!! Oh, one thing. TELL YOUR READERS CALL THEIR SENATORS TO SAY “VOTE FOR HARRIET!!” I forgot to say that before. O.K. good night.

Thats right, Call You're Senators. Today is my two-week anniversary as a Nominee, and I have to say, it was fun to start but sometimes its more like purgatory... if your calling Senator Frist please tell him to SCHEDULE THE HEARINGS!!!

(Note, the article gave away my IM name, which is annoying, thats my only complaint. It was dallasharriet44 but now I might have to change it, I dont know.)

Another note, Murder Boards are like a roll-play. You practice answering questions. LINK

A WHOLE NEW HARRIET!!

I'm in Time Magazine!! Thats two weeks in a row, a "personal record". Not on the cover (yet!!) just an inside story... but its an inside story that tells the Inside Story!!
Get ready for a whole new Harriet. After a disastrous two weeks, White House officials say they hope to relaunch the nomination of Harriet Miers for the Supreme Court by moving from what they call a "biographical phase" to an "accomplishment phase."

Well its about time!! Enough about my biography, let's talk about my lifetime of accomplishment.
The White House's 20-person "confirmation team" will line up news conferences, opinion pieces and letters to the editor by professors and former colleagues

...not to mention a certain highly acclaimed blog!!! =D
Okay this part I dont get.
Lawmakers and staff contend that during her first round of courtesy calls, Miers had anything but a commanding presence, looking more like a prom date next to the confident Senators.

If anyone cares to remember, at prom its the boys who are nervous and awkward in they're Tux's and the girls who look beautiful!! If I can find my prom pictures I'll post them, but I think they're in Texas.

MIERS-BRIGGS TEST...(NO RELATION!!)

If you are like me, you probably waste alot of time taking online tests of all kinds, even if you should be talking to Senators about their votes and cramming for your confirmation hearing. Well if you want to save time, there's good news. You can take the Miers-Briggs test in like five minutes!!

This is the test that tells you what your like, you get four picks. Its funny, most people think I'm an I but I'm secretly an E... pretty much S, DEFINATELY F...and I guess anyone on the Supreme Court definitely has to be JUDGING!! LOL

OMG BABY FEVER!!!

Cutest credit card in the WORLD!!!



I just ordered it. (Obv the black bar isn't on the real one, I just added it to cover up the # so I don't fall victim to Identity Theft, I know it sounds paranoid but "10 million Americans are victims of identity theft each year.") I bet I'm going to have like the World's Best Credit when I'm confirmed, because the Supreme Court is a lifetime appointment.

I've been totally useless today, none of us are supposed to do any work that might create a Paper Trail b/c of the investigation so its like why are we at work in the first place?!!!

UPDATE: The Independant Women's Forum says "the Harriet Miers Blog!!! looks pretty darned sexist to me." So your saying that I only got a baby credit card because I'm a woman. Well isn't that sexist!!

****************************

I forgot to put that up on Oct 3 ("cut me some slack" people, I'd just been nominated to the SUPREME COURT!!), but this applies to the whole blog not just from now on.

MY PHILOSOPHY

Everyone is talking about "What's my philosophy." A good example, The Hot Line, which is kind of like The Note for insiders. This is from the Blogometer:
the WH and the RNC appear to be caught off-guard at the overwhelmingly negative response to the Miers pick. Mehlman was caught a bit flat-footed at times; on several questions, he could do little more than reiterate that she would explain herself at the hearings, that her "philosophy" and "character" were sound, and that they had to trust Pres. Bush's decision. ... Mehlman sought to quell concerns by promising that she would "lay out her philosophy."

Well I think this has gone on long enough!! Here's my philosophy, its simple really.

FOLLOW YOUR HEART!!!

Thats all there is to it!! OK that's all for now folks!!

(PS I really really want to talk about the Drudge Report thing but Dan says I have to withhold comment at this time as he put it... to people who have emailed about it, sorry but I really do have to witthold comment.)

HAPPY YOM KIPPUR!!!





Its a holiday for the Jewish faith. One thing I love about our President is his commitment to Every Race and Every Religion, its an inspiration for us all to honor that. I made Yom Kippur cookies for my Jewish colleagues but its like everybody's sick today!! Nothing's worse than being sick on a holiday but wouldn't you know it.

PS Yes thats a Halloween tablecloth...what can I say, I LOVE HALLOWEEN!! LOL Hey do Jews celebrate Halloween?

CONFIRMATION STRAW POLL--PLZ ONLY SENATORS VOTE

Okay this is just for US Senators, Im just trying to get a sense of the State of Play. Its Non Binding and it just takes a second. If your not a Senator, I'll know because I'll get more than 100 votes!!

Whats your vote, on confirming me I mean??
AYE
nay

Thanx for your help everybody!! XOXOX

UPDATE, I think this isn't working... unless alot of Senators are FLIP-FLOPPING

MO DOWDY MO PROBLEMS

Thx Ann Althouse, Maureen Dowd did a column making fun of me, at first I was mad because its all fake but then I realized its a joke.
Since there is no breathtaking Miers judicial record to pore over, I was eager to read more breathless Miers missives to a president she describes as the most brilliant man she has ever met. How could I get the notes from the White House, given how opposed Mr. Bush is to leaks? I called Scooter and Karl and they sent the secret documents right over.

August 2001 "Thank you so much for letting me bundle up and drag away the brush that you cut down today. And if I might add, Sir, I've never seen a man wield the nippers so judiciously. It was awesome! You are the best brush cutter ever!!"

Well Ha, Ha Maureen Dowd. Frankly if you'd done you're homework, you'd know I don't use words like "nippers"... not to mention, "judiciously."

LOL Nicolle said, "So Maureen Dowd is accusing you of being a superficial hack? Pot, Kettle, hello?"--get it, like a pot calling the kettle Black, their both black. Well at least Maureen Dowd is obv reading my blog.

NEW TO BLOG ROLE...GAYS...

I just added some links to my Blog Role, plz let me know if I forgot you. NOTE: reader AK pointed out that alot of gays are linking to my blog and now some are on my Blog Role. Well AK thats okay with me, like President Bush I believe in "judge the sinner not the saint." But if you aren't comfortable with gay blogs then "think before you click"!!

UPDATE--thanks reader MS, my blog is #3 link on Google for Harriet Miers!!! What if I'm the #1 hit, then people will get the REAL STORY w/o the spin!!

I'm such a blogaholic..."The first sign of trouble is if you blog alone" LOL

WON'T... BACK... DOWN!!

You know alot of people say alot of things. And everything is such a mess right now at work, everyone's covering their own butt. So you might think the president would be thinking about "throwing in the towel."

WELL... If you think that you don't know the President very well!! I just visited him, guess what he was listening to!!

Well I won’t back down, no I won’t back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won’t back down
...
Well I know what’s right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin’ me around
But I’ll stand my ground and I won’t back down


Okay and heres the kicker... thats what I was listening to RIGHT BEFORE!! Thats how "in sink" we are, we chose the same song. (Full disclosure, he told me about that song in the first place, and now its my favorite, so I guess no surprise.)

so anyway it was like..."yes I love that song too, Mr. President, but READ YOUR BRIEFINGS!!!" LOL

Tuesday, October 11, 2005

NSFW

OMG so... gross...

thanks reader LB! --guess who that is!! Everyone thinks she's Mrs. Nice but she's not...

"NO MORE PUBLIC SCATOLOGY"

Alot of people want to know what this is about...

"I appreciate your friendship and candor. Never hold back your sage advice," he wrote. "P.S. No more public scatology." Whether Bush was referring to Miers' rough-and-tumble time as chairwoman of the Texas Lottery Commission or something else isn't clear. Scatology refers to "the study of or preoccupation with excrement or obscenity," according to Webster's dictionary.

Gross right!! Well its not as bad as its sounds, but let me just say the President is living proof that Great Men sometimes have gross senses of humor and lets leave it right there!!!

besides "A lady never tells!"

NOT TO SAY I TOLD YOU SO, BUT...

Now that all my memos are out there for anyone to see, I think some apologies are in order from my critics, you know who you are!!! The record speaks for itself, I have always been 111% for President Bush, even though alot of people didn't understand his True Potential.

Sooo, if people have any questions about my Conservative Credentials, there's your answer, I have stood by George W. Bush through thick and thin, that's the true test of a Conservative. Plus as it says I won the Jurisprudence Award!! Glad thats finally getting some attention in the MSM!!!

Too bad the vote in the Senate isn't TODAY, it would be a Referendum on the President, the BEST AND MOST POPULAR PRESIDENT IN OUR HISTORY!!!!

Oops I'm late for work gotta GO!!!! SO MUCH GOING ON but I'm on top of the world today!!

UPDATE, PS In case your wondering, no I won't EVER change I promise!!
PPS Ever EVER!!!
PPPS You can probably guess what I'm going to say... well your right, ever ever EVER!!! LOL

HARRIET WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!!

Open letter to myself...

Dear Harriet,
What were you THINKING!

Blecccch...

"Ice cream flies when you're having fun"!!

Sincerely YOU,
Harriet

UPDATE: Okay its the next morning...I didn't get enough sleep but no stomach ache!! Thanks reader KT for suggesting Ginger, it really helped!!!

OMG I ALMOST FORGOT...

HAPPY COLUMBUS DAY EVERYBODY!!!

Antonin you're an INSPIRATION!!

I WILL DO A BETTER JOB WITH SPELLING

Well, I just got my comeuppance. From a comment:

when your bloggings are spelled and punctuated properly (as with the earlier entries)... they are much more enjoyable.

This blog is partially for me, Harriet, but also partly for You, the Reader. Its true, I've gotten lazy. If I want to be a Justice, I have to give it my 110% in all that I do!! So from now on I'm going to "clean it up." If you see a mistake, please tell me.

I can do anything if I set my mind to it... and my mind is set on the Supreme Court!!!!!

SAMPLE BIAS!!

Poll of "right-of-center" bloggers about me...HELLO, I AM A RIGHT OF CENTER BLOGGER, it looks like someone made a poll trying to get a certain answer!! "You get what you poll for!!"

When Right Wing News has a liberal bias, you know your up a creek...

INSTA-HARRIET

Okay, ANNOUNCEMENT: I'm starting a Blog Role. For a limited time only, you can trade links with the next Supreme Court Justice of the United States!!!! Its by popular demand. The rules are, you have to put a link in your Blog Role and email me or link in a comment, and I'll link back to you.

Who will be the first! Be apart of History!

...You Can't Make It Up is first, I'm not making it up!! LOL

...musement park, SCOTUS with MOSTUS ROTFL ...Gyrobo... grinders warehouse ...pulp friction... keep them coming WOO-HOO!!

...added tons more...

If you want the whole story of how I decided to set up a Blog Role, its all on undertheirrobes.blogs.com. Boy you never realize how dumb you look sometimes on emails until you see them posted on a blog!! My advice is, always double check... now if only I could take my own advice!! LOL

DAYS OFF ARE GOOD FOR DREAMING

On a day off, the first thing always I do is SLEEP IN (yes I'm a Night Owl, I admit it!!) and then clean clean clean...and that's when I start to Think Big. So what if muse is Swiffer!!

So today I was just thinking... serve five or six years on the Bench...I could get promoted to Chief Justice...and then from there I could go ANYWHERE!! I can write my own ticket! So I should really remember, this isn't just an honor, its also a huge oppertunity for me.

Also today's my one-week anniversary of being a Supreme Court nominee! Happy anniversary to me!!

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN STYLIN'



Anything I wear can and will be used in a news photo, and I'm LOVING IT!!!! Hey everyone give me five stars!!

SOMEONE IS STEALING WEBSITE NAMES

www.harrietmiers.com, www.clarencethomas.com (at least its not a porno site, I wouldn't put it past them) www.antoninscalia.com...seriously, the Internet is "out of control!!!!"

I was going to look at all 9 but I got bored.

LATE SAT. NITE POST...ANNOYED

Everyone knows I'm taking a lot of hits these days. I can handle it, it comes with the territory, even when people are different in public than in private and should have some sympathy, they were Borked too that's how it got its name. You need a thick skin in this business. But I think this is just MEAN and UNNECESSARY:

Seriously folks, is this for real? Harriet Miers Blog I’m all for Supreme Court Nominees, appointees or any political figure blogging but there is a LINE that should not be crossed and this is SO far over that line it’s scary. If this is real then I think this should be the poster child for WHY anonymous blogs are sometimes a good thing.

I'm sorry, but I wouldnt right that about anybody else's blog, and I dont think they should write it about mine. Let me just say, Its not about me being criticized. I hope would call someone out on this if they wrote it about anyone else's blog too. Because that is the whole point of blogs. On a blog, you can really be you and not worry about what anyone thinks. It's like the opposite of a confirmation hearing. I don't think Im the one who crossed the line--I think THAT one crossed the line.

Okay, now as long as I'm on the topic of Blowing Off Steam...do not be fooled by HARRIET-MIERS.BLOGSPOT.COM, its a FAKE, I had NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. Note to whoever is doing it, if you dont take it down now when I ask nicely, well wait until Im on the Supreme Court. Hint hint.

Okay, thanks for sitting through that...

Now on a happier note, if I can direct your attention to the top of my blog, you'll find some laudatory quotes from prominent individuals and newspapers. Not to toot my own horn or anything--oh wait, actually yes to toot my own horn LOL!!!

Seriously tho its really gratifying to have the support of people I respect, and also USA Today, "The Nation's Newspaper."

And with THAT, Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers is going to get some well-deserved sleep!!

BADURDAY

Thats what it feels like... I'm trying to keep on a happy face, but its really hard today for some reason. I guess its a combination of the earthquake...and things going really bad on Capital Hill...and just everything, its one of those days. Im sorry I havent posted today.

UPDATE: Just like that, wouldn't you know, a Pick Me Up...someone knew I needed a "pat on the back!"!!

From reader AU:
Hey, Harriet, I just wanted to point out that Wonkette really thinks your outfit is fab!!!

And then look at this LINK!! "Someone Sexied My Justice Up!" I know, the article is mean, but Wonkette is so sarcastic.

Thanks AU!! Her real name is Anne, I'll give it away... she is a Friend In Deed.

ADVANTAGES OF BEING A JUSTICE ON THE SUPREME COURT #2

if you meet someone who says Danger is my middle name, you can say yeah well my first name is Justice!!

UPDATE: correction, "Justice is my honorific." thanks to reader WS!
P.S. I loved you're column

UPDATE: *Your* column!! Sorry LOL I always mess that up

OFF THE RECORD

Okay this is Off The Record. About abortion, its what all this is about. If you think I should say what my position is, and you want me to be confirmed depending on what my position is, then I'm sorry, your just dumb because as soon as I say what my position is I can't be confirmed.

I mean no matter what my position is someone will get PO'd. Okay enough Off The Record

"This has been Off The Record with Harriet Miers" LOL

ANOTHER HARRIET O SCOPE!!

BLOGKEEPING--I wrote this longhand yesterday, forgot to put it up.

Welcome back, folks, to another edition of the Patented, One-And-Only Harriet-tional Wisdom Watch!! (for a full explanation, LINK. Basically /\ is good, \/ is bad, <> is in the middle.)

/\ Rev. Falwell for endorsing noted attorney HARRIET MIERS to the Supreme Court!!!
/\ Harriet Miers for winning the "Falwell Primary"!!
/\ Related, its a good show, that's probably what its like to have sisters
\/ Redstate.com, you need to KEEP IT TO A PAGE if you want anyone to read it
<> Barbara Mikulski for saying what everyone was thinking (SEXISM, Im sorry but that's what it is), too bad she's a "Dumbocrat" (okay, that was dumb, I couldn't think of anything better)
/\ our COMMANDER IN CHIEF (the real one, NOT the show!)
/\ Mary Worth
/\ happy birthday Elizabeth Shue!! From a fan (**Remember I wrote this yesterday but I forgot to put it up, I know "my \/"! - ed)

WHAT IM READING RIGHT NOW



Men In Black: How the Supreme Court Is Destroying America, I had no idea it had gotten this bad... its a good reminder that this isn't just about me or even President Bush, its about the future of all of America.

BUT, I have to say... The book isn't as good as the MOVIE!!

UPDATE: I know the movie isn't based on the book, but your right Reader GR, I should have made it clear I was kidding because they'll use anything against me

JOKE I MADE UP...NEEDS WORK...

A woman drives up to a gas station and says "A full tank of gas please" and he says "No, its too expensive" and she says "Well Im not leaving till its full" and he says "I bet you'll give up"--and she looks him straight in the eye and says "fill it buster!" - like "filibuster"

UPDATE: this would have to be in NJ, its all full-service gas stations there

UPDATE: I guess you can tell I've been thinking alot about filibusters

UPDATE 3:
The first two comments have really good suggestions!! Thanks gyrobo!!!!

ADVANTAGES OF BEING A JUSTICE ON THE SUPREME COURT #1

IMHO = In My Honorable Opinion!!!

WHAT A CRAZY DAY!!!!!

It's such a blur, Its like I have to read the news just find out what I did today!!

Here's my CELEBRITY PHOTO--"in the senate, in the senate yeah, I do my little walk in the senate":



I don't know where to start... well, today I dressed "conservatively" (you can guess why!!!) for my meetings with Senator after Senator, after Senator... after Senator... after--you get the idea. I just have to say, I definitely have a favorite, but as to who it was, I "take the Fifth" ... it's like being a teacher, you have to treat them all the same.

Also, Karl was in a really bad mood--and not just "The Mondays on Thursday," which I always get for some reason, but I mean WHEW. So that's one reason why I didn't blog besides being super busy. One thing I want to explain though is that anyone who emails me, I try to respond, even if I disagree with them on everything. If I haven't written back to you yet it's because I've been so busy, SEE ABOVE!! LOL but seriously, thanks to everyone writing in to say You Go Girl, it feels good to know I'm not alone. Its weird how you can feel alone in the middle of so many people.

YOU KNIT WHAT?!

Okay I have a new favorite site on the internet: "You Knit What?!" OMG its so funny... some of these things are so bad they should be unconstitutional--oh wait I can do that now!! Or soon... "Senator, I normally wouldnt comment on a specific case but that sweater is a crime against humanity!" J/K LOL

warning, some of the language is NSFW (Not Safe For Work)!!

(Yes, I'm blogging from home, what can I say I'm addicted now!!)

Anyway, la di da, what else... oh, I'm the whole first page of google now for "Miers," and www.miers.org isn't 'til the second page... I guess thats not interesting to anybody but me... God I wish I could just be confirmed like today, its killing me. Okay BTYL (Blog To You Later!!!!)

UPDATE: I forgot... HAT TIP, Malaysia ...my bad

WHAT DOES DOBSON KNOW??

I hope it's not something embarrassing!

Also I think this is hilarious ....... hello factcheck.org?!

UPDATE: Okay I figured it out. Its pretty obv once you know!!! But I'm not going to tell even if you guess it, I'm "daring to be disciplined."

THE SECRET OF MY STYLE SUCCESS

Alot of people have written in about my Turquoise outfit today, which I wore to a lot of public events:

Okay so it's NOT the best photo (it never is LOL), but you have to admit the colors are perfect for me! "Like perfect perfect," as reader JM said. The question is, what's my secret. Well, I normally wouldn't give it away. But now that I'm the SUPREME COURT NOMINEE, I figure it's time to give something back.

Okay, ready? Do you want to know how to always pick an outfit that flatters your coloration? Drum roll... my secret is,

Ta-da!

Color Me Beautiful is in my top 4 books (with the two I mentioned, plus the Constitution of the United States, duh!!!) and it'll be in yours too!! It tells you what season you are and then, most important, what to do about it in terms of outfits. Guess what season I am!

On Amazon there's only four left in stock--"get it while its hot!!!"

BACK IN THE SADDLE!

So, Karl and Andy were talking about whether my blog is okay or not, esp. since it's "out of character" for the Bush White House--Karl was like "if this were the Clinton Administration, you would've started blogging five years ago!" LOL...

I'm guessing I'll get to keep the blog. A) Its not a big deal. It hasn't been on TV or anything. B) But it would be a bigger story if they took it down. C) I pointed out "What about the FIRST AMENDMENT?!" and they laughed, I don't know why.

Here's the exciting part... there's a chance Karen Hughes might start helping me out!!! She's so thoughtful... when i got confirmed, she sent me flowers even though she was busy with diplomacy in the Arab World. I admit it, I have a total girlcrush!

The decision was put off though because everyone has to do Fitzgerald stuff now.

Funny how things work out--if I hadn't gotten nominated, I wouldn't have started the blog, and if I didn't get caught there's no way Karen would work with me on it. So everything really does happen for a reason. If you've read my co-favorite book (with the Bible!) then you understand what I mean.

Of course, being nominated to the SUPREME COURT is its own reward!!

OMG I SPENT TOO LONG ON THAT POST AND I GOT CAUGHT!

Im just writing this really quickly... Andy Card came in when I was blogging and saw it even though I minimized it really quick, now he's talking to Karl ... I hope they don't withdraw my nomination, this is so so so bad

WHY I TRUST PRESIDENT BUSH

George Will says "The president's "argument" for her [ME] amounts to: Trust me [HIM [I mean BUSH not GEORGE WILL]]." LINK

I agree!!! I trust Bush, the best president of the United States not only now but ever. But George Will doesn't. Okay. Fine. But heres the thing... lots of turncoats agree. LINK LINKY LINK LINK LINK

Why is everyone suddenly Judas-faced!?

Alot of people didn't trust Bush about Iraq they were WRONG.
Alot of people didn't trust Bush about Faith-Based and they were WRONG.
Alot of people didn't trust Bush about Budget Cuts and they were WRONG.

I've been the nominee now for three days and the buzz is starting to wear off a little bit. Here's what I do when I have days like this: I look at my favorite poster and turn my headphones way way up on my favorite song, Imagine.


You may say I'm a dreamer,
but I'm not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

NOTE ABOUT THE NOTE

Okay so I sucked it up and actually read The Note today, except I skipped the second half and all the boring stuff about who's meeting with who blah blah. (But I did see that the Supreme Court is already in session! Whoa guys wait for ME!) LINK


Here's what I think about the Note.
- Doesn't care about anything except SCOOPS and who's winning
- Lingo - "nut graphs"?! DIRTY.... J/K LOL ;)
- LIBERAL BIAS except it also makes fun of Democrats
- Too many names
- It seemed like they were talking about me like I wasn't a real person, just a political dodgeball

Its weird being famous because everybody pays attention to you but they're not paying attention to YOU, just someone who IS you--I don't know how to explain it but its weird.

UPDATE: I'm going to lunch now, be back soon. LINK

ABORTION

No I never talked to the president about it... he's MARRIED, people!! There's no way there ever would've been a need, EVER... the rumors are a load of BS (Baloney Sandwich)!

JUST THOUGHT OF SOMETHING

Does anyone have any good recommendations of general books on Constitutional Law, history of the Supreme Court, etc? THANX!!!

Also, got recognized at Charlie Palmer's tonight--like THREE TIMES! I'm going to start carrying a pen for autographs

HELLO?! REAGAN'S 11TH AMENDMENT?!

From the Blog-o-sphere:

It's hard to overstate how disappointing the nomination of Harriet Miers is.


I think some people have forgotten Ronald Reagan's 11th Amendment to the Constitution: "Thou Shalt Not Speak Ill of a Fellow Republican." These people are what I call ALBINOs: Americans who Like Bush In Name Only!!

Well personally I'm going to try to UPHOLD the Constitution--not "legislate from the blog"!!

I CAN'T RESIST

An open letter to the Honorable J. Michael Luttig

Re: "open letter to president Bush"

Dear Judge Luttig,

Love,

Harriet
XOX

FAKE ALERT! FAKE ALERT!

I hope nobody thinks this is my real job application because its NOT, its FAKE. This makes me look so STUPID:

my current job entails many duties that will help me in a position at the Supreme Court, such as resolving disputes. For example, while planning the last Capitol Hill softball outing, I discovered the Republicans wanted to have barbecue and the Democrats wanted vegetarian. Thinking quickly, I called Pizzeria Uno and order a variety of their delicious deep dish pies which were a big hit with everybody.


Could I point out again that nobody would have put that up about John Roberts? John Roberts, who was nowhere near as high up as I am in the White House? In fact who didn't even work in the White House? Pop quiz everybody: what's the difference between me and John Roberts?

Hint: gender.

UPDATE: Oh I get it, its a joke, haha very funny. I guess I need more of a thick skin, like Cheney.

UPDATE: Of course, every rule has its exceptions...

BUSH ON FIRE

You know, sometimes working in the White House you forget that you're standing shoulder to shoulder with giants. But then you have a speech like today and you just can't believe you are where you are!! And it's like, he's talking about *me*! Me, Harriet!

Every time he said "character," I melted a little bit... and he said it eight times! And when he said I'd "have that same philosophy 20 years from now"--he means when I'm 49 years old. Wow that's old! ;)

A FEW THINGS

First of all, I'm sorry my last post... typos and much worse... well, I'm sorry. I think you can probably tell who came out on top in Miers v Six Vodka Tonics! My first case and I lost it!! LOL

2. Secondly, you can probably see my new advertisements. Well, I just want to say--please support our (my) sponsor!!



3. And for certain of you out there... HAPPY JEW YEAR! (I mean happy New Year to Jewish people--that was just a pun no offense!!)

Okay lots of meetings today (you can probably guess why!)--l8rz... also, thanks Nicolle for the Tylenol...

SOOOO HUNG OVER

Good morning blog-o-nauts!! Well, I hope its a good morning for you... because over here in the southwest corner of the West Wing, things aren't going so hot. Let me give youa tip: if your ever nominated to the supreme Court,, you don't have to accept every free drink on your first night... I think I need one of those "morning-after" pills!

Oh well... Im still the nominee and today is the SECOND DAY of the REST OF MY LIFE!! Go Supremes!!!

XOXOX

HARRIET

UPDATE: OMG not that kind of morning-after pill... I meant like a Tylenol. Okay. I'm going to shut up now. [BLUSHING!!]

QUESTION

Okay, just one more post. Someone suggested that my theme song should be:

If you got confirmation problems, I feel bad for you, son
I got 99 problems, but Harry Reid ain't one.


Does anyone get this? What does it mean? Do I get a theme song?

Okay, now goodnight for real!

BUBBLE BATH TIME!!!

THE HARRIET-O-SCOPE

I love love love Newsweek's Conventional Wisdom Watch! (It's in the Periscope section--that's where Harriet-o-scope came from. Credit where credit is due: Nicolle's idea. How I'm going to live with myself passing off clerk's opinions as my own, I'll never know!)

So, here's my very own Harriet-Miers-tional Wisdom Watch!

/\ Harriet Miers: Nominated to the Supreme Court of the United States!!! ("/\" means UP!)

/\ President Bush: Nominated the lovely Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court (not that I'm letting it go to my head!! LOL)

<> Democrats, for being uncharacteristically decent--at least some of them. (But also \/(DOWN) in general, for being Democrats!)

/\ The Note for calling me a "a trailblazing, conservative, consensus-y, strict constructionist" -- and then I stopped reading! The Note is always TOO LONG!

\/ The Blog-o-scope for not even giving me a chance, although I think I'll prove them wrong yet!

/\ Fred Couples. Happy birthday!

/\ The whole Miers

\/ Michael Buttig! Not because he didn't get nominated, but because he was such a jerk about it.

UPDATE: Blog-o-scope blog-o-sphere. Forgive me, I'm a newbie!

Okay, that's it for tonight!

JUST GOT A CALL FROM BORK!

He just wanted to say congrats, and not to let the nabobs get to me! (He actually said "nabobs!!")

Even though I'm a Supreme Court nominee now, sometimes I'm still such a schoolgirl--I get so excited whenever anyone Majorly Important actually notices me...

But I mean, Bork!

(DOING A LITTLE DANCE)

UPDATE: Cheney saw me dancing, I could just die I'm so embarrassed...

LUNCHBLOGGING

I know, it's a little late for lunch (it's not brunch, it's, what, linner? lunper?)--but honestly, I didn't even realize how hungry I was until it arrived...



Guess why this salad tastes super good today? Because I'm gonna be on the Supreme Court!

I can still hardly believe it!!

MEMO TO J. MICHAEL LUTTIG: STFU

I'm sorry, but this is seriously not okay. Mike, if you want to snipe at me, fine. But you're not Supreme Court material, you never have been, and you never will be. And if you think you're smarter than the President of the United States, well that just shows why you're a divorce court judge (or whatever you are) and he's in the White House.

Prexy just called me to say "Hang in there." Sir, yes, sir! :)

AS IF!!

No further comment...

You know who you are ;) ;)

MATT I TOTALLY FORGIVE YOU

I'm sorry I flamed you b4... I heart this picture!!



I know, I know--I'm such a softy! Okay, time to get back to my actual work... I'm still White House Counsel, you know! (But not for long!!)

I'M FAMOUS!

2,140 HITS ON GOOGLE NEWS! LOLOL okay I'm the biggest dork...

A's HIRE A's AND BUSH HIRED ME

A lot of people are attacking me for saying Bush was the most brilliant man I've ever met, and all I have to say is: you know that saying "A's hire A's and B's hire C's"? Okay, I think Bush is an A. And he thinks I'm an A. But if you think I'm a B and he's a C, and HELLO, YOU VOTED FOR BUSH, then what does that make YOU? Who hires B's? D's, is what I'd say. D as in DEMOCRAT.

And yes, I did lead the search for the new nominee, just like CHENEY, the BEST VP EVER, and if you think appointing me was my idea then you're wrong. If you think Bush chose the first woman who walked in the room, then sorry, but I'm proud I spend a lot of time in the room with the best President in the history of America.

They say that you can always tell whose side people are on when things really get going, and I think we're seeing a lot of people's true colors right about now. And the people who are "seeing red" are "showing blue," if you know what I mean.

BTW I look so so hot in black robes.

CUT IT OUT, I'M SERIOUS

I just sent this email to info@redstate.org (and yes, spammers are going to find that email address...)

You never pulled any crap like this with John Roberts. This is because I'm a woman, isn't it? You're afraid of what I'll do.

Seriously, your "sources" are getting sick of your attacking me for no reason other than I support the President. I'm not the only person here who reads your stupid blog, do you know what I'm saying?

Harriet

And the same goes for Matt, and Bill, and Rush. I can't believe you turn your back on the President the moment he supports a WOMAN. Your going to regret this.

Okay, now I'm not going to talk about that anymore.

UPDATE: And "Big Mike" (HAH!), screw you, seriously.

"HOCUS POCUS SCOTUS"

...that was the subject of an email I just got! LOLOL!!

Seriously though, I've always believed that dreams really do come true. Wouldn't it be funny if Souter and I got married? Like our kids would automatically be Supreme Court Justices! j/k I know how the Constitution works.

Hey also Frum's always been a dick, and that's why he's never going to be nominated for anything ever. I'm not going to let anyone rain on the best day of my life!

YEAH!

Everyone agrees I'm gonna confirmed!! I think when people criticize it's just sour grapes 99% of the time. And like every minute I get another phone call from someone--"you go!" "yeah!"

To everyone who's stuck by me all my life THANK YOU!!!

OMG I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M THE NOMINEE!!!

This is BIGGEST DAY OF MY LIFE!!! EVER!!!!

OMG OMG OMG
