“…I am concerned that the confirmation process presents a burden for the White House and our staff that is not in the best interest of the country.”
That’s Harriet Mier’s code for, “I’d like to save our necks, boss.” You can read the rest of her resignation letter to President Bush by clicking here.
Right-wing cheerleader, mascot, and [unfortunately] celebrated nutcase Ann Coulter spoke of Mier’s resignation as “an absolutely historic, stunning event” that “demonstrates that the movement conservatives, or the radical right wing as we’re being called, is the one with the power in this relationship, the power in the country.”
How’s that for a pick-me-up? I never agree with Coulter (shocker, I know) and this situation isn’t any different. Sure, conservatives loathed Mier’s, mostly for her mixed opinions about gay rights and abortion; but how exactly does this point to their power? If anything, it seems as if Mier’s has been paying attention to the news and remembered the adage, “When it rains, it pours.”
