Thank god for the extreme right

They have done more damage to Bush in one month then we have been able to do in 5 years. Hurrah!

Miers' withdrawal not only makes Bush look weak, it puts him in a position of weakness. He only has two choices now. He can nominate a "movement" conservative and beat his head against the wall, gaining zero popularity and losing his meager remaining effectiveness. Or, he can move to the center and weather the storm, alienating his base, but regaining some traction with regular Americans.

Many say he will go to the right, but I am not so sure. I think vanity will get the better of Bush. He will want to try and shape his legacy and as such will try to court the middle.

We may know very soon. It is likely that Bush will nominate someone quickly to try and distract from leak indictments. I'm going to go out on a limb and say he is going to nominate Gonzales tomorrow. But, it's a very uneducated guess.

Merry Fitsmass Eve
