Unclear on the concept
According to an NPR interview (via Atrios) with one of Harriet Miers' defenders, she does not really get what the term "civil rights" means.
Miers was on record saying she supported civil rights for homosexuals, but not the repeal of the Texas sodomy law.

How can one be "for" the civil rights of a group while at the same time favoring a law that criminalizes their defining characteristic? This is not the kind of insightful thinking that cries out "Supreme Court material" to me.
