When is extremely Conservative not Conservative enough

Conservative Groups Rally Against Gonzales as Justice

Within hours after Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's announced retirement from the Supreme Court, members of conservative groups around the country convened in five national conference calls in which, participants said, they shared one big concern: heading off any effort by President Bush to nominate his attorney general, Alberto R. Gonzales, to replace her.

Late last week, a delegation of conservative lawyers led by C. Boyden Gray and former Attorney General Edwin Meese III met with the White House chief of staff, Andrew H. Card Jr., to warn that appointing Mr. Gonzales would splinter conservative support.

And Paul M. Weyrich, a veteran conservative organizer and chairman of the Free Congress Foundation, said he had told administration officials that nominating Mr. Gonzales, whose views on abortion are considered suspect by religious conservatives, would fracture the president's conservative backers.


Sounds like a shakey coalition on the Right, with the lunatics attempting to run the asylum. Certainly makes sense (if you can call it that) of what's been going on.

"They don't need me lobbying on this stuff - they know what to do," said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, a conservative group with close ties to the White House. "My only recommendation is that they nominate someone who is 12 or 13 years old," to ensure as long a conservative legacy as possible.

is an example of the lunatics ruinnog the asylum?

Actually as a leftist you shouldn't be making ANY comments about lunatics. Especially considering the antics of **** Durbin and Ted Kennedy lately. Don't want to alienate any of your compatriots.

The reason Dems are surprised at the criticism
by dirtyrich / July 6, 2005 10:22 AM PDT

is that Dems by nature believe in everyone marching in lockstep...anyone questioning the party's beliefs is not a true Democrat.

Rob, I'm wondering if this may not be a case of

"Please don't throw me in that briar patch!" with hopes that feigned conservative opposition might bring Democratic support. Given his authorship of the torture memos, not very likely...

Kind of a shame that none of our kids know that analogy.

Speaking of things that are not politically correct but are cerainly politically relevant. I still have the Disney Golden Book of the Uncle Remus stories, and you used (10 years ago) to be able to get the laser disc in Japan.
