I just reread today’s very first Corner posting, and suddenly it hit me what’s happened. Bush didn’t want HARRIET Miers nominated—he wanted rock-solid-conservative-law-professor Gail HERIOT nominated! He said, “Okay, I’ve decided to nominate Heriot,” and some staffer screwed up. Or maybe the staffer was Miers herself, and it was done accidentally on purpose. Anyway, over the weekend I’ll tell the President what happened and we’ll get this all straightened out. Whew, that was a close one!
