Justice Thomas and Harriet Miers

Harriet Miers sounds like Justice Thomas when she says she's never talked to anyone about Roe v. Wade. The claim of never having discussed the case was absurd coming from Clarence Thomas, and is absurd coming from Harriet Miers. How exactly does one go through their life a lawyer or a judge without ever talking about what is arguably the most signifigant case of the last 30 years? If its true that Miers has never discussed Roe with anyone she should be rejected for never having thought about and discussed important cases, if its not true than she should be rejected for being a lier.
Emerging from a closed-door meeting with Miers, Sen. Charles Schumer (news, bio, voting record) of New York told reporters that Miers told him she had not shared her views on the court's landmark 1973
Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion.

"She said, 'Nobody knows my views on Roe v. Wade," Schumer said. "She said, 'No one can speak for me on Roe v. Wade."

The Wall Street Journal says she's lying by the way.
