Advice for Allen

With some conservatives still deeply disenchanted with the nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court, the Hotline Blog takes a stab at how this might affect the '08 GOP presidential field. And they come up with some advice for George Allen:

The only WH '08 GOP candidate who can really take advantage of this conservative split is George Allen. As the one mainstream conservative on the fence, he could really become a grassroots conservative hero (and basically bury Sam Brownback and Bill Frist) if he came out in opposition with something along the lines of: "Harriet Miers may turn out to be a great conservative justice, but conservatives aren't interested in hiding their ideology anymore; that's not what the American electorate has said the past three election cycles. So I'll oppose her for simply being too stealth." It would send the signal that he would nominate Borks and Scalias, music to the conservative grassroots' ears.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
