Harriet Miers has withdrawn her nomination. The 1993 speech was clearly the final straw: clear evidence of her liberalism, overlooked by a shoddy vetting process.
It’s time to look forward, not back. I sincerely hope that the President nominates a solid judicial conservative such as Michael Luttig or Michael McConnell. Such a choice will do much to heal the deep rift in the party. Conservatives can unify and rally around a nominee of true excellence.
P.S. We’d rally around Edith Jones, too. Or Janice Rogers Brown.
P.P.S. Yes, I have come in off the ledge. Thanks for your concern.
P.P.P.S. I just discovered a post from The Angry Clam that I have taken down because I didn’t think it struck the right tone.
