Take A Day Off, Boss

So it's a crowded bandwagon, but one worth riding. Here's how former Senator Dan Coats - Harriett Miers' Beltway sherpa during her nomination process - responded to critics of Miers' non-credentials:

"If a great intellectual powerhouse is a requirement to be a member of the court and represent the American people and the wishes of the American people and to interpret the Constitution, then I think we have a court so skewed on the intellectual side that we may not be getting representation of America as a whole."

As Eric Cartman would say, "Weeeaaak." Someone should have reminded Coats that "representation of America as a whole" sounds an awful lot like all the "legislating from the bench" business that President Bush so opposes. Or, uh, used to oppose hypothetically, before actually opposing it became politically ungratifying. It's not easy being President.

God bless David Frum. You can sign his petition to request Miers' withdrawal here.
