Harriet the Spy or I Spy Harriet?

July 13, 2006 11:30 AM

A friend of NBS emails this morning from D.C....

Guess who I saw last night???  I went over to a friend's in Crystal City (I HATE that name).  When I walked in to the lobby of his building, the elevator dings and out walks America's Second Favorite former Supreme Court Nominee (after Bork) -- Harriet Miers!!!  I asked my friend about it, and he said that she lives upstairs from him.  Very strange, because this guy's condo is a studio and not all that nice.  But, Harriet's a simple gal so I guess it suits her just fine.  She "should" be living somewhere fancy on the hill I would think.  Apparently "Duke" Cunningham lived in the building as well.

WOW.  Further exchanges with our correspondent reveal:

It was definitely her.  She was shorter than I thought she was.  She was wearing a simple gray business suit, skirt to her knees.  I said hello, and she responded the same -- perhaps flattered that the look in my eyes seemed to indicate that I actually "knew" who she was, unlike 96% of the U.S. Senate. 

What a brush with fame!  Which it occurs to us is an apt description not only of our friend's sighting of Harriet, but also of Harriet's entire career.
