Well that was certainly anticlimactic. Now what are we supposed to do with our free time? The Plame affair? More blogging about municipal bond flipping?
In a somewhat perverse kind of way, I was looking forward to the Miers hearings. Unlike Larry Ribstein, I do occasionally watch reality shows (Survivor in particular). With the withdrawal, we've lost out on daily CSPAN episodes of “Harriet Miers' final tribal council." Atleast it's still football season. Go Irish! Go Bengals!

Bill: Anti-climatic, you have got to be kidding. Those reality shows have dulled your sense of true drama. We are just in the first act. The second act will ratchet up the pressure and suspense considerably.

The selection of Miers was about as predictable as our weekly gas prices. Bush selected her because his first choice nominees bulked at the Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, and Joe Biden circus act. The truth is the bar was raised so high on the Justice Roberts confirmation that Bush is preplexed to follow such a great choice. Hell, if Harriet Miers would have been confirmed, she would have been the first SC justice to respond to the question "What are you going to do now?" with the response "I'm going to Disney World." If I were Bush, Ted Olsen would be my first choice. Olsen is a strong conservative who at least gives each viewpoint a fair take. Problem is, if the Bush White House needs him to represent their interests in the next two years, he'd be out of bounds. I think Bush has a tougher decision to now make.
