Success Only One Job AwayEdit
Harriet Miers is like a living vessel of truthiness with a law degree similar to Star Jones Reynolds. Harriet tried out to replace Star on ABC's chatfest "The View" but didn't get a seat on that bench either. Apparently, Barbara Walters didn't want her taking her spotlight. Barbara said that is simply not true, and the only reason Harriet didn't get a seat on the show was because Elizabeth Hasselbeck was their "token" and Harriet wouldn't be needed. Harriet thinks Barbara is just a mean, old, ugly Bear.
Picture Frame of a Broken DreamEdit
Harriet Miers had the chance of a lifetime to be a Supreme Court Associate Justice but she bowed out and threw in the towel. She couldn't go toe-to-toe with
Republican Arlen Specter, a renowned ballroom dancing champion. Harriet also failed the "let me see where you stand on abortion" test by not taking it.
Sandra Day O'Connor asked Harriet why did she quit, Harriet replied, "my heart told me to". Sandra Day O'Connor thinks that was a bunch of bull and that Harriet was a pussy. O'Connor thinks Karl Rove forced her to quit so that George W. Bush could put someone on the bench with balls, like Alito, who knows where he stands on abortion.
Harriet's heart was in the right place. Unfortunately, America will never get to see where her brain was. But our Greatest President Ever, George W. Bush, "knew her heart" (or more likely her gut-brain) was true. This categorically makes Harriet an icon of truthiness, and explains why she was honored on the first episode of The Colbert Report.
