From: Manuel MirandaOne should expect "grief" for making inflammatory statements that do the cause a disservice. One should expect "grief" for giving Democrats ammunition during a process when comments by the nominee are equally inflammatory. One should expect "grief" when you are causing respected conservative leaders to distance themselves from you.

I came across your post. I was surprised by the ad hominem attack. I have to assume you are young or were occupied over the past 6 years. Or are just running interference for the Leader's misguided staff.
Unlike other advocates, I do not get paid a dime to engage on this issue and it distracts me from my work. I have done it for 6 years now and expect nothing from it personally, except grief and distraction.
In any case, you apparently either did not read our letter, or are just a hack for Don Stewart. Which is it?
As I noted in my blog post, this is not about self-promotion but examining a nominees record over time and giving the American people an alternative to the air of inevibility the Democrats want to create. We must demonstrate to the American people that this person is ill qualified, which she is, on her judicial philosophy rather than just attacking a latino ala Miguel Estrada v. Democrats.
