Miers resigns

By Michael J.W. Stickings

So long, Harriet Miers.

It's been fun.


Indeed, looking back, I see that Miers took up an awful lot of my blogging in October 2005, back when Bush tapped her to replace Sandra Day O'Connor on the Supreme Court. What a farce that was.

My posts included a five-part "Miers Withdrawal Watch" that culminated here. Prior to that, I called her the wrong choice for the Court (here), explained how she was the right's Yoko Ono (here), found in response to her nomination disharmony on the right and caution on the left (here), and later something more like demoralization on the right (here), noted her extremism on issues like abortion (here), addressed the debacle that was her nomination (here), and, well, so much else besides.

But that's all behind us now. Miers was a bad choice for the Court, but of course now we have Alito instead. Which doesn't make me any happier. And now she's resigning. And she'll be remembered largely as a Bush crony and a ridiculed SCOTUS nominee who had the good sense to step aside when all was already lost.

What more is there to say?
