Durbin's Double Standards

I'm as confused as anybody else when it comes to the president's latest judicial nominee, Harriet Miers. I don't know if she's qualified or not or whether to support her or not. But I do know this: Dick Durbin has a double standard.

After meeting with Miers, Durbin asked this: "If she ends up satisfying the extreme right, where does that leave the rest of [t]he country?" (article) I would ask Sen. Durbin this: you've ended up satisfying the extreme left, where does that leave the rest of the state?
