Inflated opinion

Someone has a very inflated opinion of the influence of a single blog.
[W]ithout this site, we would right now be seeing the confirmation of some second-rater, made necessary by the defeat that Harriet Miers would have suffered by a combination of mean dems and principled GOPers, which would have weakened Bush too much to make a strong choice like Alito. Without this site, the pressure on Miers probably would not have been great enough to cause a withdrawal by that estimable lady.
For the record, the blog attracts fewer that 10,000 hits a day. Although that is nothing to sneeze at, there are 95 others ahead of it on the traffic list.
