Harriet Miers' nomination withdrawn

Just heard on the radio this morning that Harriet Miers is no longer in consideration for the Supreme Court Justice position. She withdrew her nomination after getting pummeled from both liberals and conservatives. The Christian death cultists and Clear Channel Communications seemed to like her, but they are not the lawmakers.

W has just gotten the message: personal connection and death cult loyalties are NOT enough credentials for serving on the Supreme Court. At least John Roberts had the skills, if not the ideology, that qualified him for the job.

Let's see who W's next choice would be. I hope it won't be Alberto Gonzales, who is not only another extremist, but will also ensure that Latinos will vote Republican, particularly as the Democrats fight his nomination.
