Harriet Miers, the White House counsel, withdrew her nomination to be an associate justice on the Supreme Court today.
According to a Miers spokesman, she is responding to overwhelming insistance that she devote her full time this week to scaring Trick-or-Treaters with intensive eyeliner methods.
As spokesman Richard Spinster said, "Ms. Miers has quite unexpectedly found a new calling late in life and hopes her career as a "frightmeister" will produce fond Halloween memories in children for decades to come"
The Wall Street Journal also reported late Wednesdy that Maybelline has offered Ms Miers a seven figure contract to serve as spokesmodel for the company's eyeliner products through 2010.
White House press officers offered a terse "no comment" when asked about the Wall Street Journal story.
