First, I read this from the AP: "Officials: Subpoenas for Bush figures", which begins: "Two congressional committees are issuing subpoenas for testimony from former White House counsel Harriet Miers and former political director Sara Taylor on their roles in the firings of eight federal prosecutors, according to two officials familiar with the investigation."
And then I slid on over to Harriet Miers's Blog!!!, with a hat tip to Joe Sudbay at Americablog. And now, I'm beginning to feel compassion instead of contempt for Harriet. Maybe you'll understand if you click on her blog. The slang expression "patsy" comes to mind.
