None of Dallas’ gay City Council members served at the same time as Miers. But they all said they have met her and respect her abilities and accomplishments. All said they would be comfortable with her appointment to the Supreme Court.
Chris Luna, a Dallas attorney, worked with Miers more closely than any of the other gay council members. She chaired the city’s Judicial Nominating Commission when he was a council member, Luna said..
“She is judicious, she listens to people, gets all of the facts, doesn’t jump to conclusions. Then she makes a decision,” he said.
Oh, man. Judicious. A listener. A fact finder. And not a hateful, homophobic bigot. A conservative's worst nightmare.
BONUS TRACK: Oh, yes, that first commenter was definitely on to something.
