Another teaching moment

The Washington Post has published John and Paul’s reflection on the withdrawal of Harriet Miers’s nomination and the nomination of Judge Alito to the Supreme Court: “Why Alito’s the man for the true conservative agenda.” Here is their biting conclusion:

The Miers-Alito moment shows that conservatives prefer demonstrated excellence to its absence, openness to stealth, and adherence to constitutional text to the promise of any particular result. Which makes it amusing to hear liberals, disgruntled at the replacement of a thinly qualified stealth candidate with a nominee who has a 15-year judicial track record and an intellectual capacity they don’t dispute, accusing conservatives of cynicism.
