Goodbye, Ms. Fucked-Up-Face

Under withering attack from conservatives, President Bush ended his push to put loyalist Harriet Miers on the Supreme Court Thursday and promised a quick replacement. Democrats accused him of bowing to the "radical right wing of the Republican Party."

The White House said Miers had withdrawn her name because of a bipartisan effort in Congress to gain access to internal documents related to her role as counsel to the president. But politics played a larger role: Bush's conservative backers had doubts about her ideological purity, and Democrats had little incentive to help the nominee or the embattled GOP president.

Well, that was fairly anti-climactic, wasn't it? Just when I was starting to warm to Miers and her face. Well, honestly, any amity I held toward Miers was due entirely to the vehement opposition she was getting from the ultra-conservatives. After all, if the fundies hate her that much, she must be doing something right.

Here's the official White House Press Release, if you're interested.

UPDATE: I knew there was something about this woman that I couldn't completely hate--the Concerned Women for Patriarchy America can't stand her! Seriously, check out this link. And they call Feminists shrill and histrionic!
