Consoling Miers

When Pres. Bush accepted the letter of resignation, how do you think he explained to himself and to her the reason she wasn’t accepted? Since I can’t imagine what he was thinking when he proposed her, I can’t imagine what sense he’s making of it now.

“You would have made a great judge. If only they’d gotten to know you the way I do, Harriet, instead of being rushed to judgment.”?

“You were a victim of Washington insiders who’ll do anything to damage this presidency.”?

“Gosh, Harriet, I guess the Senate just isn’t ready to have a woman on the Supreme Court”?

And so we march on to a new nomination by a man who takes Clarence Thomas as a model Supreme Court Justice. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
