Could it be?

Now, I'm not usually one for conspiracy theories, but since this morning's news of the Miers withdrawel, I've been thinking: what next? It's still Bush's nomination to make. What if he nominates an extremely conservative one? Would Democrats really be able to block that nomination? It seems the general public reaction to any further attempts to block would be "come on, we can't stop two nominations in a row made by a sitting president. That would just be too much." An arch-conservative, that as an initial nominee would have been rejected, might then get onto the bench. Could this entire Miers debacle be playing out exactly as Karl Rove planned it?

An even weirder question is what was Harry Reid doing when he said he liked the Miers nomination? My theory at the time was that the senate Republicans were going to fall into step and he was sowing the seeds of discontent between them and the Christian Right.

Then Miers' anti-choice position came out on a questionnaire from her city council race. That would have forced almost every Democrat (Reid excepted) to vote against her and then she withdrew. Now it looks like ol' Harry intended to stoke the far right's anger just enough to bump her off.

As for this being another devious plan of the alleged traitor, Karl Rove, one never can tell...
