Take a look at Alamo Nation's post today, in which George Berryman provides day-long updates of unworthy comments by anti-Miers conservatives. George does a fine job of expressing the outrage of conservatives like me who were found the hard right's savaging of Miers so repulsive.
I especially loved this graph:
Hannity and Bork are now taking turns trashing Republicans, making the distinction (as many in the elite conservative punditocracy do) between Republicans and Conservatives. Again, as I said earlier this week, a lot of us do not see that the two necessarily need to be divided. I am both a conservative and a Republican. I am in fact a Reagan Republican. For me to claim that I am other than those two things would be dishonest.You nailed it, George. A conservative Republican and proud to be both. I am also glad to be one of that fine breed.
One upside of the Miers debacle is the great collection of new blogs I have discovered, like Alamo Nation and The Anchoress. I really like both of them and am adding them to my blogroll. You should too!
