Skymusings (via Instapundit) provides some very astute (that means I agree with him) observations concerning the Miers nomination. I tried to leave the following comment at Instapundit:
Some of the anger being directed at the President might be better directed at Dopey McCain and the other six dwarves - Graham, DeWine, Warner, Chafee, Collins and Snowe plus notable Rino's such as Voinovich. They all share the same trait of steering by weathervane rather than compass and none of them are trustworthy in a real political fight.
Remember: "I fought for Bork and wound up with Kennedy" is how the last battle came out. Put a torch on Dopey if you are rooting for a Luttig/McConnell type pick. The President isn't noted for trying to force a weak hand - and nothing could be weaker than the McCain/Graham fearful duo.
What do we owe to the Syrian boy on the beach in Turkey?
