There’s an interesting dynamic that’s overtaking the Miers nomination. In an interview I did with him on the Hugh Hewitt Show today our friend John Fund of the Wall Street Journal said that Miers’s time on the Texas Lottery Commission will become the new Dem focus on the nomination, and that they now plan to use it — and old CBS fave, former Texas Lt. Gov. Ben Barnes — to revive the whole Bush Air National Guard story. Even the CBS fake-but-accurate memos. The Dems would be nuts to revive that stuff. But the old scandals at the Lottery Commission could lead to something that would damage Miers (but not likely the president). Stay tuned. The needle on the Ugliometer is twitching.
