man bites dog

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jul 22, 2005

This is rare, so savor it: An op-ed columnist for a liberal newspaper-- the Boston Globe, yet: the hometown paper of Ted Kennedy and John Kerry-- admits that a) there's no evidence that John Roberts is a rabid ideologue and b) there can, in principle, be such a thing as "A Principled Conservative."

Astonishing!

Think about it: When was the last time you encountered a liberal willing to recognize that a conservative could be guided by anything other than prejudice, avarice, hatred, or (most ominous of all) religious faith?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    I am beginning to worry.... even Robert White Sheet Byrd said nice things about Judge Roberts today. Do they know something I dont? My guess is that the word is out that confirmation is inevitable and you might as well relax and enjoy it. They are trying to score points by looking reasonable. Now President Bush can turn around and nominate a woman when Rehnquist retires and they will have nowhere to go. It sure benefits W to have them so convinced how stupid he is.

    Imagine that, a "principled conservative"! To paraphrase Diogenes, you mean to tell me that there's a liberal newspaper that's willing to describe a conservative in terms other than knuckle-dragging, drooling, cross-eyed, crotch-scratching, in-bred, hate-mongering...? that there are some of us who have principles?! that we're not all guided by prejudice, avarice, hatred? Glad to see one liberal paper making such progress!
