Political Schadenfreude and My Latest Conspiracy Theory

Tom Delay indicted for the 2nd time in a week! Can't you just see his forked tongue darting out of his mouth?

Harriet Miers -- I'm speculating that she is just a red herring for the White House. Remember how things got a little hot for Karl Rove this summer and Bush rushed into the Roberts nomination? Well, the Valerie Plame story is once again hot with Judith Miller coming out of jail and naming Scooter Libby as her Administration source on the leak. Then George Stephanopolis this weekend revealed that someone in the Administration had told him that this went all the way to the top -- directly to George Bush! So Georgie-boy had no choice but to rush into one of his patented "pay no attention to that man behind the curtain" routines by announcing Miers as his nominee. There is no way that she will be confirmed -- everyone, right and left, in the blogosphere and out, agrees that she is simply not qualified for the job. So I offer this theory: Offer Miers as the first nominee, because she is expendable. Watch the nomination get shot down in Congress, then offer an even more neoconservative candidate, whom the Democrats will oppose vehemently. The Repugnant-cans will then accuse the Dems of "partisan politics" and the Dems (weenies to a man, with the exception of a few, thank you Barbara Boxer and Henry Waxman) will back down in their special way. What the Democrats need is their own "Hammer" just like Delay (minus the lizardy eyes and corrupt circle of cronies)-- ruthless and not afraid to show it.

Where the heck is James Carville when we need him? Huh? Huh? I love the Ragin' Cajun! And I quote: "When your opponent is drowning, throw the son of a bitch an anvil."
