Miers' Makeup Test

After leading members of the Senate declared Harriett Miers' nomination questionnaire was filled with "insufficient" responses (prompting a fantastic "Daily Show" skit last night of which I will try to find a video link), Dahlia Lithwick over at Slate has cooked up a little replacement exam. Snarky, yes - but hysterical.

On a more serious note, Miers will apparently stop meeting with senators in order to spend more time studying for her confirmation hearings. The Washington Times (yes, the Times) says Miers will spend the next two weeks "cramming" before she goes in front of the Judiciary Committee. What is this, a seventh-grade history exam? Surely there are candidates for the Court who wouldn't have to "cram" for a Senate hearing ...

Stygius has more. His conclusion: "Stick a fork in 'er, folks. She's done."
