Consistency Is Too Much To Ask

Andrew Sullivan on Harriet Miers: “It seems to me that using explicitly religious criteria – rather than jurisprudential philosophy – for judicial nominations is yet another sign of how degenerate Bush’s brand of conservatism is. Much of it is not, in fact, conservative at all – but a profound betrayal of the entire tradition.”

Andrew Sullivan on Sam Alito: “The upshot of [Pope] Benedict’s church will be indeed to dictate to Catholic public officials, including judges, what they can and cannot do and still be allowed to receive communion. Under those circumstances, a judge’s religion would indeed be fair game for Senate hearings, it seems to me.”

But, hey, who can be surprised? He had a whole week to do his 180.
