Things to Come

I'm half-expecting that, with the Miers nomination withdrawn, the conservative Christians are going to want to deny the use of any "litmus tests" on the next nominee, despite the one they applied to Miers (and she apparently eventually failed). So, I'm waiting to hear some right-winger say of the Miers process, "oh, that wasn't a litmus test, that was just a test of qualifications using binary logic"* any day now.

* "litmus test" is a layman metaphor for what might be properly called "a test of qualification(s) using binary logic".
