Does anyone else get the feeling that conservatives are protesting
the Harriet Miers nomination a bit too much
Also, for all the high-minded sentiment against a "litmus test", it's clear that there is one: to be acceptable to the far right, a Supreme Court nominee must be ready to roll back Roe v. Wade
. The conservative "resistance" to Miers is revealing in it's contrast to the red carpet reception for John Roberts from the evangelical right.
Maybe they knew something about his views that he did not deign to share with his Senatorial interlocutors. Perhaps Harriet Miers would do well to make some sub rosa
promises of her own to the anti-abortion crowd.Update
: Looks like the White House has
been whispering top secret sweet nothings
on her behalf in James Dobson's ear....
