Evangelicals vs. intellectuals

Disregarding for the moment the fact that Michael McConnell is both an evangelical and an intellectual, this line of argument is not uninteresting. I will say that if the Bush Administration is going to mobilize evangelicals on Miers’s behalf, they haven’t yet succeeded in doing so, at least down in the grass roots. My church friends (generally well-informed and generally well-educated) haven’t yet focused on the Miers nomination, and don’t go googoo-eyed when they hear that she’s an evangelical. Just an anecdote, I know....

Score one for the evangelicals, then. Some of them are seeing through the smokescreen.
