One lame idea after another

Jaded JD links (with some glee) to this Newsweek story that says the Bush administration is strong-arming Senator Allen and other presidential aspirants in their latest act of flailing about to secure the consent of the U.S. Senate to the nomination of Harriet Miers to the U.S. Supreme Court.

As I've been thinking football and baseball lately, I'm wondering how the Miers' nomination compares with the Red Sox trading Babe Ruth or the Steelers cutting Johnny Unitas - will history record this nomination as a blunder that starts a funk that lasts for decades? There might not be another Republican nominee to the Supreme Court for 20 years, just as the Democrats had none during the 1970s and 1980s.
