Meirs Runs All the Way Home

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush on Thursday accepted the withdrawal of Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers after weeks of opposition from both liberals and conservatives, who questioned her qualifications and record.

In her withdrawal letter to the president, Miers said she was "concerned that the confirmation process presents a burden for the White House and its staff and it is not in the best interest of the country."

In a statement, Bush said he "reluctantly accepted" her withdrawal.

I'm a hardcore Liberal. But I have much respect for Republicans - REAL republicans-not these knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing, bible humping whackadoos like Bush. He's a neo-con, and a tremendously worthless one at that.

It's good to see some bipartisan opposition to this idiotic nominee. Maybe this country isn't as screwed as it seems?
