Reading the conservative blogosphere on the Miers nomination, I can’t help but think of that speech Bill Murray made in “Stripes”:
“We’re all very different people; we’re not Watoosie, we’re not Spartans. We’re Americans, with a capital A, huh? You know what that means? Do ya? That means that our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world. We are the wretched refuse. We’re underdogs, we’re mutts! … But there’s no animal that’s more faithful, that’s more loyal, more loveable than the mutt. …”
That pretty much sums up the President’s nomination of Miers.
We’ll try to write a bit more about this, but the level of nose-in-the-air elitism playing out now among conservatives is getting to be a bit much.
