Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

It’s official

E.J. Dionne, Jr. has become a spokesman for Moveon.org and all the other left wing interest groups, arguing, in effect, for a filibuster of the Alito nomination until the Bush Administration comes clean on all its misdeeds concerning the Wilson-Plame affair. The nomination of Alito is, in any event, a divisive (unlike the nominations of Breyer and Ginsburg) attempt to distract us from the real issues, which involve a self-important ex-ambassador’s attempt to discredit intelligence that the British government still endorses and the alleged outing of a covert agent whose husband was doing everything possible to call attention to himself and whose current status didn’t and doesn’t meet the requirement of the law.

Isn’t that precisely the opposite of "moving on"?

I can’t tell you what beautiful music this news plays in my ears! These people are actually going to commit suicide.

History very well may record what a noble thing Bush did, by nominating Miers, to try and forestall this pitiful, self-destructive act by Democrats. Alas, I must confess, I felt a bit like that too. Then I realized that the Miers nomination was a bit like trying to stopping the waters from running over Niagara Falls.

What a stupid idea that was, eh? Brace yourselves, conservatives, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!

I’ll be interested to see if this idea catches on. I doubt it, and I hope that it does not. To link the outcomes of these two issues strikes me as inappropriate, inadvisable, and impractical.

At the same time, I hope and expect that the Democrats will oppose the Bush agenda at each independent front, with every fiber they possess.
