Miers mixed on the Federalist Society

Drudge has two articles on Harriet Miers' relationship with conservative/libertarian legal organization, The Federalist Society. Apparently, in 1989 Miers said she would not belong the the group because it was "politically charged." However, in April of this year, Miers spoke to the DC Lawyers' Chapter of the Federalist Society, praising them as "an important ally."

The Federalist Society is a fantastic organization that helps to raise the level of debate in the legal community and is well-respected by many reasonable people on all sides of the political spectrum. The idea of the Federalist Society as some covert, "cloak and dagger" type arm of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy is an absurd notion perpetuated by the fringe elements of the left-wing. The fact that some Democrats in the Senate accept the characterization as valid only shows how skewed their perception really is.

Here's hoping that Miers' reaction to the Federalist Society link is better than the snub extended by Chief Justice Roberts.
