Last week, I wrote that it is highly possible that some of the "more qualified" candidates for the Supreme Court may have been asked to take the job, but declined, resulting in Bush settling for Harriet Miers. Some people said I was on drugs. But this morning on Rush, I heard that, according to James Dobson, Karl Rove said that other people were asked and said no:
“Well, what Karl told me is that some of those individuals took themselves off that list,” he said, according to a transcript obtained last night. “They would not allow their names to be considered because the process has become so vicious and so vitriolic and so bitter that they didn’t want to subject themselves or the members of their families to it.”
This sounds to me like a combination of my scenarios A and B...
But what do I know? Dr. Dobson and I must be on drugs.
