    The most qualified person he could find...

    Simply amazing.

    And remember, Miers was the person heading up the committee to search for a SCOTUS nominee. So not only did Bush think she was the most qualified person around, so did she!

    It would be one thing if she had the mind of a Roberts -- who despite being on the other side of the ideological divide from me still managed to impress me with his knowledge base. Roberts is a constitutional scholar through and through.

    Miers is a hack who is loyal to Bush. That is her only qualification.

    You forget, she's also a good church lady.

    It's amazing the degree to which this administration is falling apart. I mean, I'm enjoy a little schadenfreude and everything, but the utter incompetence of these people is embarrassing. They can't do anything right.

    And Cheney was the one heading up the commitee to find a VP candidate. I think I'm gettinig it now. Bush is just really, really lazy. And stupid. Don't forget stupid.

    Corrupt might be a tad too dramatic. She's a crony, and by definition, cronies take care of each other. It's the American version of the old boy's network.

    Yeah, she just knows the right people, and that's pretty much all it takes in this administration. If I were friends with Bush, I'd be the next Fed Chairman because I have a subscription to the Economist and know how to calculate interest in Excel.

    You would appear to be over-qualified.

    He would be over-qualified except for one thing. He doesn't have the one prime requisite -- complete and total loyalty to Bush over truth.

    Tristan, I would suggest you fire off a letter to Bush telling him he is 'the bestest president ever'. Conclude with 'America is blessed.' You might just be able to change his mind before the 1PM EST announcement.

    Have you ever done your own taxes? See, a man who know his way around numbers. A man who -- what? You haven't ever done your own taxes.

    As I was saying, we need a man, a leader who knows how to delegate...
