Harriet Miers backs out

Harriet Miers has declined her nomination to the Supreme Court, and Bush accepted her withdrawal.
Oh, dear. Now it gets ugly. Brace yourselves as Bush tries to make things up to the far-righters who have been howling since he failed to nominate an activist judge who will legislate from the bench in a manner that they find favorable.

Miers was a bizarre pick by Bush, except that he rewards toadies and loves sycophants. Her positive was that she obviously wasn't a reactionary twit rather. Now that Bush is going to prostrate himself to the extreme Right, we're very likely to get someone keen on imposing the standards of the 18th or 19th century.
