The Supremes

It’s hard to tell, but it seems like the Harriet Miers nomination is crumbling. A good thing too.

This thought just occurred to me. She is slightly less qualified to be on the Supreme Court than Hillary Clinton was in 1997. The two are often described in the same way, hard working, thorough, driven, etc. I imagine they did a lot of the same legal things for their respective presidents. Just imagine the uproar if Bill had tried to nominate her then (assuming there was a vacancy).

That odd president of ours

Via the Agitator, this was in the Bush-Myers papers

Bush responded to her birthday wish in kind, and included a humorous, if baffling, postscript.
“I appreciate your friendship and candor. Never hold back your sage advice,” he wrote. “P.S. No more public scatology.” Whether Bush was referring to Miers’ rough-and-tumble time as chairwoman of the Texas Lottery Commission or something else isn’t clear. Scatology refers to “the study of or preoccupation with excrement or obscenity,” according to Webster’s dictionary.
