Ding Dong, the Dangerously Unqualified Crony is Dead!

Okay, so she's not actually dead, but her nomination is. Harriet Miers has withdrawn her supreme court nomination, and Shrub has "reluctantly" accepted the withdrawal.

The White House said Miers had to withdraw over concerns that senators wanted documents of privileged discussions between the president and his top lawyer.


"It is clear that senators would not be satisfied until they gained access to internal documents concerning advice provided during her tenure at the White House -- disclosures that would undermine a president's ability to receive candid counsel," Bush said in the statement.

Kinda makes you wonder what the White House was afraid would get out, doesn't it? I'm choosing to see this as a positive sign, although of course that means that Shrub still has a nomination to pull out of his ass. Since he seems to only know about 20 people total, I'm guessing his next nomination will be the court clerk who managed to hide Bush's DUI for so many years, or maybe someone from the White House cleaning staff. Either way, it's a happy day for progressives, and as Twiggy said to me this morning in instant message: "My reproductive rights live to fight another day". Huzzah!

I found out another scary fact today. Rove's indictment comes down today. Could this resignation be a smoke screen for that?
