A wonderful point made by the fine folks at first draft.

According to George W. Bush, Sam Alito is less qualified that Harriet Miers:

Q Mr. President, of all the people in the United States you had to choose from, is Harriet Miers the most qualified to serve on the Supreme Court?

THE PRESIDENT: Yes. Otherwise I wouldn't have put her on.

Your President and First Lady wouldn't lie to Matt Lauer, would they?

Q You said she [Harriet Miers] is the most qualified candidate for the job -

THE PRESIDENT: As I told you.

Q -- would you agree with that?

MRS. BUSH: Absolutely. Absolutely.

Spin THAT.
