The sacrificial lamb

As I wrote yesterday morning, my theory is that Harriet Miers was a sacrifical lamb. It seems great minds think alike.

According to CBS News legal analyst Andrew Cohen, "Did a lamb just get slaughtered? Don’t believe for a second that concerns about “executive privilege” doomed the Supreme Court nomination of White House counsel Harriet Miers. The privilege issue is just political cover — a convenient excuse, really — to allow President Bush to do what he had to do to avoid further embarrassment for himself and his buddy."
