No place left to go for Right Wing
Mark Shields (!) writes a great and tough-minded column that shows why the Right Wing in America shot down all of their objective minded talking points along with Miers, to wit:
1. Bush can nominate who he wants;
2. We must have only up or down votes;
3. No questioning of a nominated judge's religious beliefs as a clue to his/her jurisprudence;
4. President Bush opposes quotas.
Let's just keep the above in mind when Bush nominates his replacement for Miers and the Republican leadership and spokespeople start to sing their old pre-Miers tunes.
