If we can get Ms. Miers to come in and take the bait and actually sit in this ridiculously short chair, then we can make her look like a fool no matter what the substance of her testimony. Henry (Henry Waxman D - FL) plans on asking her if she needs a glass of water before we start the proceedings (snickers). He is such a rascal."
