    the Miers nomination has been a debacle for Bushco.  Personally, I never bought the idea that she was a moderate of any sort, which means that at some point the Democrats would have had to put up some public opposition to her.  Of course, the Repugs, as much as many of them detested her, would have tried to use that opposition to deflect attention from the main issues.

    Frankly, I'm quite happy about all of this.  No matter who Bush nominates now, the crap that came out of the mouths of both Bush and the rightwing idiots can be flung right back at them.  Damn!  Do you think that Harry Reid really pushed for her nomination, knowing that this would be how it played out?

      I think Harry truly liked her. Could be wrong, but it doesn't smell like a grand scheme. I mean, who could have predicted the far right would go so totally against the Preznit on this?

      Much as a I hate catchphrases, could it be Katrina changed everything?
