SILLY SEASON: As another day passes with no White House indictments, enemies of President Bush are going all out. Andrew Sullivan, widely criticized by conservatives for endorsing Kerry last year, declares: Because "the president is reeling," Bush should "fire" Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and Andrew Card; withdraw the Miers nomination, and shake up the whole cabinet. These steps need to be taken regardless of whether any White House officials are indicted, Sullivan says. This will show the world that Bush "gets it." No, Andrew. What it would show the world is that Bush has decided to give up governing. I haved a more straightforward suggestion. If Cheney leaves office, Bush should nominate John Kerry to serve as vice president. Then Bush could just resign, and Andrew Sullivan could get the president he originally wanted. Added bonus: the United States would get not just a new Iraq policy, but all of the Iraq policies Kerry articulated during the presidential campaign. We'd get Teresa, too. Oh, joy.
