Michael Graham's New Project

My favorite radio host has a new project: Stop Miers Now. As ever, Michael throws around a little hyperbole:
What can you do to stop the Church Lady from getting her inexperienced hands on your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness? First, don't call the White House. It won't do any good. A president who never fired Michael Brown, Norm Mineta or George Tenet isn't about to start dumping buddies overboard merely for being incompetent.

No, the people with the ability, duty and political interest to stop Harriet Miers are the 55 Republican members of the US Senate. They swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, and it never needed more protection than it does now--from a life-time appointment of an unqualified political hack with no experience or tested judicial philosophy.
Michael wouldn't be Michael without a little hyperbole, now would he?
