ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

The Left: Tough to Parody

As mentioned in earlier posts, my co-conspirator Brian and I were traveling back from an undisclosed location when Bush made the Miers announcement. Once it was mentioned that Miers was Bush's chief counsel, Brian immediately made the comment that the Left will take two angles on this:

  1. Cronyism - Miers is another Brownie. Indeed, an immediate check of DU showed that that meme had already taken hold. (Unfortunately, this meme has not been pushed only by the Left.)
  2. That Miers was picked because she has dirt on Bush.
Well, we had a good laugh over the second one... Surely the Left isn't that deranged!

Wooops. We were wrong. From the Twinkie-Meister Oliver Willis:

Does Harriet have some explaining to do?

Bush’s Guard service may affect Miers nomination
A former Texas lottery official, who claimed that then-Gov. George W. Bush’s desire to cover up his National Guard record helped steer decisions about a key lottery contract, said he wants to talk to senators about Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers’ possible role in that effort.
