FEDERALIST FIT (via Tom Corcoran):

Who Was the 2nd Choice? (Ann Coulter, October 20, 2005, FrontPageMagazine.com)

I have finally hit upon a misdeed by the Bush administration so outrageous, so appalling, so egregious, I am calling for a bipartisan commission with subpoena power to investigate: Who told the president to nominate Harriet Miers? The commission should also be charged with getting an answer to this question: Who was his second choice?

Alberto Gonzales

If Miers fails to get the nomination, how are the republicans going to stop Gonzales?

In your contest, Alberto was my reluctant guess. GWB evidently decided that the base wouldn't accept him, and it certainly won't accept him after Meirs goes down. So, who's behind curtain #3?

Bush is not running for re-election, he will go for his legacy by putting a Hispanic on the court.

Ann's question is misplaced - if more than one person said no before Miers, then who were they?

He went with Miers instead of Gonzales because his wife wanted a woman and she's the most reliable vote against Roe.

Because his wife wanted a women? Balderdash!
