KEN MEHLMAN DID A CONFERENCE CALL WITH BLOGGERS on the Miers nomination. Prof. Bainbridge blogged it. So did Patrick Hynes, and so did Mark Coffey.

I wasn’t on the call — I got an email, but I’m crunching on the book — but here are two thoughts: (1) They should have done this the day of the announcement, not the following week; and (2) It doesn’t seem to have been enough to win people over.

UPDATE: RedState has a post on the call, too.

ANOTHER UPDATE: The Ice Age cometh?
