So Harriet Miers is an evangelical Christian, not that there's anything wrong with that.

That seems to be the MSM's approach today with front page splashes in the Washington Post and New York Times. The Foreign Desk's musings last night on the Beltway treatment of Miers' faith could be confirmed here -- the establishment will discuss her faith as a bio bullet without exploring what it means outside of abortion. But these articles provide both ammo and comfort for folks on the left and right. The conservative non-country club types will love this news, but could flinch at Justice Nathan Hecht's assertion to the Times, "'You can be just as pro-life as the day is long and can decide the Constitution requires Roe' to be upheld."
