Bowing and Scraping

While it's certainly true that people on our side of the fence had reasons to object to Miers, reflecting as it did the elevation of cronyism as George Bush's supreme governing philosophy, that had absolutely nothing to do with why she was withdrawn. The Right doesn't care about cronyism, they were just angry that she wasn't a right wing extremist.

Ann Coulter is on CNN gloating, which says everything about the high standards of the nation's most respected cable channel, but what was Coulter's stated objection to Miers? That she opposed Griswold. Ann Coulter and the rest of the right wing crazies oppose the right of married couples to have access to contraception.

That's the America they want, and they want a judge who will give it to them.
