Miers' Withdrawal

Harriet Miers withdrew from her nomination to the Supreme Court. Since all of Washington has been focusing on the impending indictments of Karl Rove and "Scooter" Libby I imagine it was something of a shock for most of the city. All I can say is good riddance to bad rubbish as she certainly was not qualified to be on the bench (though Thomas and Ginsberg certainly suggest that the bar is not all that high). My only concern is that now Bush is really going to bend over for the far right and give them exactly what they want. Some fire-breathing reactionary who thinks Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh actually have anything useful to say. This will lead to the left exploding and in the end the person will probably get confirmed but not until we have seem millions of dollars spent on advertising that I certainly have no desire to see or hear and the Senate will have practically destroyed itself over it.

Maybe Dick Cheney will get indicted and distract us from this.

We seem to disagree on the wisdom of the withdrawal, but certainly agree on the postential results.
