Not only did Miers get suspended from practicing law not once, but twice — twice! (surely well aheard of the previous record for any nominee to the Supreme Court?) — but it seems, via Yahoo!

“The tipping point in Washington is when you go from being a subject of caricature to the subject of laughter. She’s in danger of becoming the subject of laughter.” —Bruce Fein, quoted in Newsweek.
