See Ya Harriet, Can't Say I'll Miss Ya

So Harriet Miers withdrew her nomination for the sweetest gig in the legal universe, a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court. Which is fine, she was unqualified and was nominated by Bush for personal reasons rather than that she was the best person for the position. Its probably all for the better since Halloween only comes once a year and she'd have to take off her Alice Cooper black eye makeup in a week or two. And then she probably looks like a scared hamster rather than an aging Goth princess.

And I love that the GOP was okay with her being an activist judge because she would have been actively pushing the GOP agenda and that's the kind of activist judge that the GOP approves of. Not them judges that let two men marry each other or let sick people smoke pot to help ease their medical problems. Nope, those are the evil kind of activist judges.

Anyway, I have no doubt that Bush's next nomination will make us wish we'd just let Harriet get appointed because the next one's gonna be a whopper. But any political setback for these charlatan crooks is a good thing for the country and the world. Heck, it might even be the staff member who's about to get indicted for leaking Valerie Plame's name to the press (most likely it'll be Libby, nobody knows him and he'll be a lovely little scapegoat to save the VP and the Turd Blossom).
