Anvil Watch: Will to McCain: Vote No on Miers, or else
I think we can pass the popcorn on the Miers nomination; this episode gets a hearty two thumbs up. Sit back, enjoy the ride, and watch the Republicans eat their own! George Will:
Such is the perfect perversity of the nomination of Harriet Miers that it discredits, and even degrades, all who toil at justifying it.
Isn't that the best part? Everything we've experienced, and said, about the thieves and liars and looters and cowards occupying the Oval Office and infesting the White House grounds, everything, the Republicans are now experiencing for themselves. Watch them squirm and try to clean themselves!
[A]ny Republican senator who supinely acquiesces in President Bush's reckless abuse of presidential discretion -- or who does not recognize the Miers nomination as such -- can never be considered presidential material.
I'm takin' to you, John McCain!
