Full Steam Ahead (No Backing Down On Miers)

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House on Thursday dismissed critics of Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers who want her to withdraw from consideration amid new questions about her conservative credentials.

Spokesman Scott McClellan signaled full steam ahead with the Miers nomination, saying the White House lawyer had begun filling out a questionnaire required by the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will consider her nomination, and hoped to turn it in early next week.

The President either looks weak and pandering to his base, or he looks weak and pandering to his opposition. Either way, he looks like a dummy with this nomination. What happened to the “council of Senate and House leaders?” I still think my nomination suggestion of Judge Judy should be considered. She has more credentials that Ms. Miers.

Everyone, watch at what paining yourself into a corner looks like.
