If the right thinks they will be able to shove through a nomination of their choice they should be sorely mistaken. The Democratic Party may be toothless, but the American public is ready to start looking for dentures. These last two months have been one ache after another with a couple of root canals thrown in for good measure.
Harriet Miers Withdraws Nomination: "The last person to withdraw as a Supreme Court nominee was Douglas H. Ginsburg, nominated by President Ronald Reagan in 1987. Ginsburg pulled out after revealing that he had used marijuana. Three nominees have been rejected by the Senate in modern times, including Bork.

Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), the Senate minority leader who supported Miers, called the withdrawal a victory for 'the radical right wing' of the Republican Party.

While the decision was a blow to the Bush administration, the move also may defuse a major controversy for the White House as it confronts possible indictments stemming from the disclosure of the identity of covert CIA operative Valerie Plame."
Defuse what controversy? Treasongate isn't going to go away. The building is falling down around their ears. The architects are in serious trouble and the only escape route left to them is to take down their bosses and don't think they won't. As has been pointed out before their loyalty has always been to themselves and not the job or the nation.

Harriet Miers is the first of the sacrificial lambs to try and appease a base that is rapidly becoming distateful to the general public. It should have been the Michaels (Brown and Chertoff), but what the heck, women and children first.

Maybe Jenna and notJenna are going to enlist?
