More Miers

Well, as if this nomination wasn't already taking on water and listing to one side, now the WaPo reports this.

It seems as though Miers doesn't even completely understand the Constitution. At this rate, any confirmation hearing is going to be deeply embarrassing for both Miers and the Bush Administration, especially when contrasted with John Roberts' performance, in which he never referred to a note, had trouble placing or expounding on a particular case, or conferred with any colleague.

Some day the behind the scenes story of how this airball of a nomination will be told but for now it is time for pull it. The only possible explanation for Bush's intransigence is that it has been a rough few months and he may be inclined to dig in his heels. This would be a mistake.
