Harriet Miers? Why Harriet Miers?

President Bush has nominated a person out of his personal inner circle to the Supreme Court. Why?

Maybe it's all part of the unraveling of the Plame-gate aka Scooter-gate conspiracy to sell the Iraqi War.

Bush wants someone on the Supreme Court who actually knows what went on in the White House and that he, Bush, really was in a bubble, and really, really did believe the stuff fed to him by the Cheney-Neocon cabal about WMD in Iraq during the lead-up to the war.

It would all go back to Neocon’s recognizing early on that the Bush-Rove dynamic duo was the perfect political engine to pull the Neocon vehicle to the pinnacle of power.

Rove would do anything to get Bush elected, and Bush would simply accept it as his due … from God, no less. There would be no introspective soul-searching. Bush knew he was chosen by God. Rove was focused on getting Bush elected to the presidency ... twice.

There was nothing strange in this to tip Bush off, to tweak his curiosity, to set off an alarm. This was the way life always turned out for him. Success happened to him personally … no matter what.

Well, Rove has it figured it out. He and Bush have been had by Scooter and Cheney. And Scooter’s involving him, Rove, in the outing of Valerie Plame is now--with Fitzgerald untangling the threads, connecting the dots--threatening to pull the rug out from under the whole shebang.

Having figured out that he was purposely made the fall guy to protect Scooter and Cheney’s butts … or at least to make sure the White House stayed on message … or simply because they were too arrogant to think it through … Rove is now coming clean to the grand jury.

But he has the problem that he didn’t come clean at first.

However, his “indiscretion” in pointing out Valerie Plame to Mathew Cooper by mentioning the wife of Joseph Wilson is small potatoes compared to the conspiracy to lie us into war using Bush #43's earnest cheerleading talents.

Rove, of course, has explained all this to Bush.

Voilà! Bush nominates Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court as a backup plan for pulling his chestnuts out of the Neocon fire.

Make any sense? I think it does.

interesting read ... agree with one light 'If a business person were to hire someone with no experience for a top position (like Bush has done more than once now), that person would be seen as incompetent and incapable of being in a position of such authority. '

Bush is an idiot. Instead of "praying for" he "preys on" and every word out of his mouth is pure sanctimonious BS. Sad thing is, last election it really wasn't much of a choice among any of the candidates. All we do not need in this country is another one of his bible thumping friends screwing the public under the guise of Christian Fellowship. God is having a heart attack.

Makes sense, but I think you've been far too generous with Karl Rove, who was also an unqualified cronie.
