Intemperate Rhetoric

The Hedgehog Blog - It's All About Decency, Folks
Alamo Nation - Reaction to Miers Bow Out
The Anchoress - Harriet, Bring the Cannoli!

have good analyses of how some conservative critics of Miers have damaged themselves by their intemperate rhetoric.

It’s hard to rebuild a damaged reputation (ask Clarence Thomas and Harriet Miers). But, the job is even harder when you damaged it yourself.

Whoever digs a pit will fall into it,
And he who rolls a stone will have it roll back on him.

Proverbs 26:27
