Hard-Hearted Harbinger of Haggis

Harriet Miers fails to show up for today’s Congressional hearing, even to assert privilege.

As Josh Marshall pointed out yesterday, not only can Miers be held in contempt of Congress, but by telling her to not show, George W. Bush may have committed a felony.

Mustang Bobby (directly below this post) has plenty more to say.

    Bush, a felon? Now there’s a shocker.

    Unfortunately, I doubt that Miers is worried. Even if she’s charged with contempt, Bush can just keep pardoning as many underlings as he needs to, in order to ensure their silence while he runs out the clock on his term.
