Look at this! A new feature! The Ashcrometer! Until this afternoon I was going to start the Ashcrometer at 85% chance of confirmation.

But then I saw this Newsweek Poll that says, by a small margin (41% to 37%), more Americans want Ashcroft rejected than confirmed. That and the Stuart Taylor article mentioned below bumped him down a bit. So for now the Ashcrometer stands at 77%.

The further south his nomination goes the more scrunched he gets.

P.S. More Ashcroftiana coming soon, more Ashcrometer updates!

P.P.S. Return later on Sunday for a post-Sunday chat show update of the Ashcrometer.
