Wampum: Starting at Center, number 43, from SMU, Harriet Mieeeeeeeers

Wampum: Starting at Center, number 43, from SMU, Harriet Mieeeeeeeers:
"Conservatives are getting desperate to find a way out of the Harriet Miers fiasco. Earlier today, I noted Charles Krauthammer’s idea to gin up a dispute over the production of documents in order to find a way for the nomination to be withdrawn while allowing all Republicans to save face.

Rush Limbaugh has an even crazier notion:

My idea is this: The solution to the Harriet Miers issue. The president announce that he's withdrawing her from nomination to the Supreme Court because he's decided to appoint her to succeed Alan Greenspan at the Federal Reserve. He trusts her. She has filled out her own income tax forms all of her life, and she has done her personal banking all of her life. She knows banks, she knows tax reform, tax policy, and the president trusts her, so she could go to the Federal Reserve."

I'm one of those nutjobs that says let's get rid of the Federal Reserve System. However, until we wise up and return to the gold standard Big Boss at the Fed is one of the most important positions in our world. Greenspan becomes more and more hackish all the time, but he is still a smart and powerful hack. This is the stupidest idea I've heard in a long time...
congrats Rush!
