Hankerin’ For a Brawl
by

The second biggest disappointment with the Miers nomination was the missed opportunity for a brawl in the Senate. Conservatives wanted badly to pull the nuclear/constitutional/whatever-word’s-in-vogue-this-week option, and choosing a cipher with Harry Reid’s support effectively ruled that out. So you can bet many folks are of the same mind as the Wall Street Journal today:

The best way Mr. Bush can counter the “capitulation” charges is to show that he’s not afraid of a political fight. He said yesterday that he will act quickly to name a new nominee, and we hope he’ll select someone who can’t be challenged on grounds of credentials–even if it means a Senate battle over judicial philosophy.

Let’s have it out. Be unafraid, Mr. President.
