Is This The Conservative Crack Up?

Howard Fineman posits that we are in the midst of the long awaited conservative crack up.

As much as I would love to see this, two bad months does not a crack up make. But it is hard right now to see how the President rights this ship. The obvious move is to withdraw Miers nomination, appoint someone like Janice Rodgers Brown or Priscilla Owens and pick a fight with the Democrats over their nomination. But I don't think that the WH would win that fight right now. They would get back the conservatives, but would lose the moderates in the Senate, and appear to be caving into the right's demands.

Maybe this is the crack up after all.

(BTW - Light blogging because of an extremely busy personal and professional schedule, plus it has been fun to sit back and watch the right fight amongst themselves.)
