Let me be the first to suggest to President Bush that his "if at first you don't succeed" model of leadership has never had a better opening for use than it does today, with the news that AG Alberto Gonzales is resigning.
President Bush, it's been some time since you said "f--k you" to your supporters and your base (it's been weeks and weeks since the immigration bill died), so let me recommend the perfect nominee for your Justice Department pleasure: Harriet Miers.
No, she didn't end up on the Supreme Court, and in fact she ended up out of a job after that fiasco, so it only seems fair that you should offer her another shot at national prominence. And why not replace one undistinguished attorney with another?
Harriet Miers, Mr. Bush. And remember: you can run her as the "transparency nominee". Just make sure she starts updating her blog again. Thanks!
