"Wonderful thing, subpeenies!"

Speaking of Jame Dobson, it appears he's not anxious to be subpoenaed:

Focus on the Family founder James Dobson will take to the airwaves Wednesday and Thursday to clarify what information he got from the White House or other sources about U.S. Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers.
As Wilford Brimley said to Paul Newman: "Wonderful thing, supeenies!"

Of course, if Sen. Specter is still concerned about a quid pro quo, he shouldn't take Dr. Dobson's radio word for it. He should subpoeana the good Doctor to testify under oath before Congress, "under penalty" (which is what "subpoeana" means) of law should he give false or untruthful testimony. (That call, by the way, is supported by Democrats on the Judicial Committee, so it may well happen).

Make no mistake about it: the wheels are rapidly coming off this bus.
