Harriet Miers Flies Delta

Ah, rats.

I was so looking forward to the circus. On the other hand, whew. The woman writes worse than I did in high school, and seems to have thought less about her judicial philosophy than I have.

Interestingly, even though pundits are dismissing it as the “official” reason, I suspect her withdrawal letter gives the genuine reason. Rather than endanger the imperial presidency, Bush will allow a rare reversal. I doubt anyboy who stops and thinks about it for a while believes that Bush cares what conservatives, liberals, or anybody else thinks of the competency of his candidate. Loyalty is the Rosa Parks of principles in the Bush administration, with competency taking the very back seat.
