I love it when it’s conservatives forming a circular firing squad. And I love it even more when people who stood happily by as the Bushites threatened and slandered anyone who dared differ with them get to find out how it feels to be on the receiving end. John Fund reports:
Many longtime supporters of President Bush have been startled to get phone calls from allies of the president strongly implying that a failure to support Ms. Miers will be unhealthy to their political future. “The message in Texas is, if you aren’t for this nominee, you are against the president,” one conservative leader in that state told me. The pressure has led to more resentment than results.
I’m hoping, though not expecting, that the next time the Bush folks decide to call a war hero a coward or accuse Catholic Senators of anti-Catholic bigotry, some of the folks who are being called sexist and elitist for opposing Miers will remember, and protest.
