More Cronyism

Ezra Klein makes a good point over at TAPPED concerning Bush's nomination of Harriet E. Miers for the Supreme Court:
This is cronyism. It should be called that. And all Democrats who ignore it because Miers isn't that bad should be quickly and forcefully reminded of one Mike Brown and the hand they had in confirming him.

I have one additional comment on this. With his overt policy of preemption as a legitimate tool of foreign policy combined with his fortuitous ability to stack the Supreme Court, George Bush may be the early 21st century version of a conservative counterpart to FDR in his ability to shake-up the status quo. And remember, I don't think that's a good thing.
