What do you think of some of the speculation out there that Harry Reid suggested Harriet Miers as an effort to sabotage Bush politically? It makes a lot of sense to me – she’s not very formidable, yet Reid knew Bush would like the idea of picking someone who’s such a close ally/bootlicker (you pick). It’s kinda like this: Say you have a colleague at work you can’t stand and you know has terrible judgment.
This colleague just bought a bunny suit and keeps telling everyone how he can’t WAIT to find some occasion to wear it. So you sidle up to him and encourage him to wear it to the company’s annual black-tie banquet.
“Hey, buddy, I just want you to be happy. Would I steer you wrong?”
What I think is that these sorts of triple bankshots seldom turn out to be true, and seldom work when they are true. But seldom isn’t never. And it’s fun to speculate.
