Harriet Miers, 2005-2005

With consideration for the political fortunes of her boss that has been the hallmark of her public service, Harriet Miers withdrew from consideration as Supreme Court Justice. Kudos to Charles Krauthammer for predicting the very grounds of her withdrawal.

What this means is that Campbellites worldwide have now fallen from the pseudo-Episcopalian, Brahmin heights to which Miers had taken them and are back in the muddled middle class that is their true caste. Now Christian church members around the country can stop buying Brooks Brothers suits and joining country clubs and get back to selling insurance, teaching school, driving the kids to karate lessons, and serving up Hamburger Helper. Ah, the sweet anonymity of worldly inconsequence!
