    Talking Rove said other Sup. Court nominees didn't want the job..

    Heh fascinating...rats leaving a sinking ship?

    Before President Bush nominated White House counsel Harriet E. Miers to the Supreme Court, his deputy chief of staff, Karl Rove, called influential Christian leader James Dobson to assure him that Miers was a conservative evangelical Christian, Dobson said in remarks scheduled for broadcast Wednesday on his national radio show.

    The LA TIMES reports: In that conversation, which has been the subject of feverish speculation, Rove also told Dobson that one reason the president was passing over better-known conservatives was that many on the White House short list had asked not to be considered, Dobson said, according to an advance transcript of the broadcast provided by his organization, Focus on the Family.

    Dobson said that the White House had decided to nominate a woman, which reduced the size of the list, and that several women on it had then bowed out.

    ``What Karl told me is that some of those individuals took themselves off that list and they would not allow their names to be considered, because the process has become so vicious and so vitriolic and so bitter that they didn't want to subject themselves or the members of their families to it,'' Dobson said, according to the transcript.

    Oh please, there are tons of conservatives who would take tea with Satan himself if they thought it would give them a chance at a seat on the high court. What a load of bs: Rove once again spinning, spinning, spinning, trying to shore up support for an obviously unqualified candidate whom no one likes. Can't they just indict Rove NOW and spare us any more of his ridiculous, transparent bs?
