It's Confusing When a Stupid Person Plays Dumb

Writing on TPM Cafe ("and don't forget to tip your blogaristas!") Matthew Yglesias quotes David "I Came Up with 'Axis of Evil' and Still Got Canned" Frum with this tasty tidbit about the woman who will most likely be the next Supreme Court Justice (since the opposition party can't be found):

In the White House that hero worshipped the president, Miers was distinguished by the intensity of her zeal: She once told me that the president was the most brilliant man she had ever met.

It's easy to laugh, until you remember she's from Texas. (All apologies to Jim Hightower and Kinky Friedman, neither of whom she's probably met, since Jim is a populist and Kinky has that name and hangs with the Texas Jewboys. Don't be fooled by her name Miers--she went to SMU. Which probably also helps to explain why Bush seems so smart to her.)
