Do They Not Bleed?

I was glad to see this conclusion to John Fund’s excellent Wall Street Journal piece on the Harriet Miers nomination today:

The damage to [President Bush’s] relations with his conservative base would blow over quickly if Mr. Bush were to quickly name a well-qualified nominee who was not a sphinx when it came to judicial philosophy. Perhaps this time he might even expand the talent pool to include–gasp–men.

On the other hand, John is a white male, so he probably should be ignored.(Yes, I am kidding.)

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
