Miers on Bush

She think he is, like, totally, the Best. Governor. Ever.  And way cool.

Unfortunately, I'm barely exaggerating.

I mean "eschatology".

I loved Letterman's take on it last night:

"A Supreme Court Justice needs, above all else, judgement. What kind of judgement does Harriet Miers have? She has called President Bush 'the most brilliant man I have ever met.' Harriet Miers: drunk, or stupid?"

Meirs' gushing, girlish praise for Bush can be explained away in one of many ways - petty, political apple polishing, a genuine crush or she knew he would be president one day and was securing a spot on the Supreme Court. What is more puzzling is G.W.B's exhortation to Meirs to refrain from "public scatology" in an otherwise affectionate personal note. There is speculation that he meant "eschaotlogy". But why would the Texas Lottery Commissioner indulge in public religious debate? Scatology on the other hand, would come in handy in shouting down obnoxious lottery opponents.

I read somewhere that Andy Card wanted Miers out because of her incompetence as White House counsel. But since she is a darling of both Laura and George Bush, he was afraid to fire her. So Card suggested to the president that he nominate Miers for the Supreme Court, as a safe way to get her out of the West Wing. Could well be true. Nothing is too far fetched for the convoluted workings of this administration.
