Harriet Miers, a time bomb for conservative progress:from the Arizona Republic: "But I can blame the White House for playing the fool's game that says results count for all. As though a Supreme Court justice's vote counts for everything, and her arguments count for nothing. How perfectly Bushian.

What an insult that is to William F. Buckley, founder of National Review, William Kristol, publisher of The Weekly Standard, and the late, great Robert L. Bartley of The Wall Street Journal.

The timing is so perfectly destructive it is difficult to call it a mistake.

For 50 years, the conservative movement has been arguing its case, making powerful arguments for placing legitimate, positive-minded limits on government.

For 30 years, the most important venue for making those arguments hasn't been Congress or the White House. It has been the Supreme Court.

And now, to carry that almighty water, Bush gives us Harriet Miers.

God help us is right."
