Brit Hume Says Sandra Day O'Connor Is Considered A Total Squish

Reported by Donna - October 3, 2005

Today on Studio B with Shepard Smith, Brit Hume was the guest on President Bush's current nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court.

When Smith asked Hume why some conservatives are concerned about this nominee, Hume went back to Ronald Reagan and said that no one could believe that Reagan would nominate anyone who was not a staunch conservative. But, Hume added, Anthony Kennedy turned out to be a terrific disappointment to most conservatives, as was Sandra Day O'Connor.

He then said that O'Connor came to be known to many on the right as a total squish and that's what they're afraid of with the Harriet Miers nomination.

Comments: Well, I looked squish up in the dictionary and it said it was a variant of the word squash. Squash as a noun is something that is considered obsolete, something soft and easily crushed.

I'm not sure how this applies, but you can be sure that the president knows where Mier's judicial phlosphies lie. And the vice president, Dick Cheney, was quick to appear on the Rush Limbaugh show and said "I'm confident that she has a conservative judicial philosophy that you'd be comfortable with, Rush."

"Trust me," he added.

So, I guess she won't be a 'squish'.
