Degrees of a Nomination

First there was anger, then denial (maybe this is all a plot to soften up opposition to the real nominee), then plain embarrassment. Now there may even be a degree of sympathy for Harriet Miers over how she is being placed in a position for which she is clearly not qualified, if Arguing with Signposts' latest comments are an indication.

Maybe the next step will be outright support by those on the right end of the political spectrum -- in which case I will stand and salute the WH for their pure political brilliance. (But somehow I doubt it.)

Professor Bainbridge has the latest news on the nomination, but apparently has not made the jump to sympathy for Miers, yet.
