Get ready for a whole new Harriet. After a disastrous two weeks, White House officials say they hope to relaunch the nomination of Harriet Miers for the Supreme Court by moving from what they call a "biographical phase" to an "accomplishment phase." In other words, stop debating her religion and personality and start focusing on her résumé as a pioneering female lawyer of the Southwest. "We got a little wrapped around the axle," an exhausted White House official said. "As the focus becomes less on who she’s not and more on who she is, that’s a better place to be."

Same product different week. I buy this one brand of generic cat litter precisely because it is cheap. On the bag it actually says brags about new packaging. No not a tougher package less prone to spill the contents, but a new color scheme and layout. Still exactly the same cat litter inside. I am suppose to want this product more because the packaging changed. Now not to compare Harriet Miers to cat litter, the packaging concept is the same. The President and his advisors have failed to acknowledge any valid arguments criticizing her nomination and instead have resorted to name calling and switches on emphasis.
But since I am generally a supporter of the President I will help him with his new campaign. What better way to rebrand her nomination than coming out with a new cereal to coincide with her nomination. After all that works with movies and toy tie-ins, so why not judicial Supreme Court nominees which is much more important.
Announcing Scoties™, "The Breakfast of Constructionists" Made with 100 percent trailblazing originalist ingredients.
Includes moral fibre which is essential for a "Roe V Wade"-less dietary regime or a strict constructionist diet. Taste-tested and vetted by prominent Evangelicals.* Included in each package is her judicial philosophy (just keep digging it’s in the box somewhere).
* Evidence for judicial nutritional claims are not currently available for peer review, but heh, trust us. After all we all gave you sugar flaked Souter-O’s which still leave a bad taste.
