A consequential presidency my arse. Here’s a mystery pundit on Harriet Miers:
[…] First, Bush has no right to say “Trust me.” He was elected to represent the American people, not to be dictator for eight years. Among the coalitions that elected Bush are people who have been laboring in the trenches for a quarter-century to change the legal order in America. While Bush was still boozing it up in the early ’80s, Ed Meese, Antonin Scalia, Robert Bork and all the founders of the Federalist Society began creating a farm team of massive legal talent on the right.
Ok, so who said it? Paul Krugman? Michael Moore? Nancy Pelosi?
Would you believe…. Ann Coulter? (!)
My, oh my, how times have changed. It seems like only yesterday that her crowd was smearing as “anti-American” anyone who dared second guess our hapless Emperor. Let’s face it, Fox Fans, when Ann Coulter turns on W., you know the wheels have come off the bus…
And in a “true color” moment of utter desperation, Empress Laura — taking a page from the Dem playbook — allowed that the criticism of Ms. Miers may be nothing more than sexism.
