I have a friend that often sees folks getting excited over nothing and she instructs them in this manner: “Don’t get your knickers in a twist!” She lets them know that things have a way of getting sorted out. I feel that way about folks fidgeting over Harriet Miers. I want to tell them to not let their knickers get in a twist. This will sort out.

First, thanks for your comments, particularly to wait for the smoke to clear before making a decision, except as you point out, it hasn’t.

Nice! br> — Mark Davis

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
