Patrick Ruffini has started up a movement encouraging conservatives to "chill" about the Miers nomination. Here's where you can join, if you wish, and read up on the reasons why GWB deserves support on this one.
It looks to me like conservative views break down into these two camps:
- Miers will be a reliable Scalia-Thomas conservative vote on the Court, so we have what we really want; why complain? This is pretty much the view of the Coalition of the Chillin'. (See Hugh Hewitt, who is this camp's champion.)
- Yes, Miers may vote correctly, but she's not going to add star power to conservative Constitutional jurisprudence at the Supreme Court level. (See Power Line, who exemplifies the views of this camp.)
