Early thoughts on the scuttling of Miers

This is an email I Blackberried to Scooter while I was driving home listening to Hugh Hewitt's show on the radio:

"To: [Scooter]
Sent: Oct 6, 2005 5:31 PM

"Brownbeck on HH. He met today with Miers, did not sound impressed. I'm predicting Repubs torpedo her."

Comments: Yes I was driving home at 5:30 on a Thursday. Problem?

I was thinking of a revolt on the committee. Scooter emailed me back that it would be very tough for the Republican senators to go against the President. I thought about it and had to agree.

So what? While we were spared a hearing (which would have been a disaster) and a public revolt by the Republicans on the committee, I had an inkling that the nomination wasn't going to go.

My thought was that the Prez might be the kind of guy who does not suffer what he might percieve as disloyalty lightly.

And I'm less concerned with your driving home at 5:30 than I am with you DWB...driving while blackberrying.
