Miers, Miers, On the Wall
Where she then gets shot by a conservative firing squad. Did my usually channel hopping through the political talk shows this morning. Conservatives are really unhappy. All the attacks on Miers came from the conservative commentators. Pat Buchanan, Bill Kristol, George Will, all teed off on the woman. This is getting serious. Like, not getting confirmed serious. The people that now really matter are Senators, particularly those on the Judiciary committee. Of course with his top political advisor facing indictment, one wonders how many favors Bush can call in with the Judiciary committee. After all, they might be doing a “What did the President know and when did he know it” in the next few years. Bush might need to keep some markers in his pocket.
