I was disappointed that the Washington Post‘s clown in residence Richard Cohen didn’t come out today and apply his Roberts Perfection Standards test to Harriet Miers. You remember how last month Cohen variously attacked Roberts for not having “a touch my incompetence” and for not ever having been poor and for being too perfect in every way and for having too easy a life? So what happened with Miers? Cat get Richard’s tongue?
As it happens every so often with Cohen, he did the right thing today and came out blasting those on his side who would demagogue and distort Bill Bennett’s recent remarks.
But that doesn’t get him off the hook for not reacting to Ms. Miers.
