Pull the Plug
By Gail Heriot

Whatever one thinks of Harriet Miers, her nomination to the Supreme Court appears to be doomed. Indeed, I suppose it's possible that the decision to do so has already been made. Tradesports suddenly dropped down to 20 this morning (from about 60 yesterday) before rebounding to about 37. Does somebody know something that I don't? Or was this simply a reaction to today's revelations about Miers' activities with the Texas Lottery Commission? Either way, things look very bad.
