Continued fallout

More and more people are starting to reach the tipping point. The Southern Appeal blog has, and details some of the issues with the GOP (Going Overboard Promptly)

The Democrats are perfectly capable of giving us No Child Left Behind, Medicare Prescription Drug entitlements, expansion of the AmeriCorps program, and an increase non-military spending at over twice the rate of Bill Clinton's administration. No need to vote GOP to receive such an agenda.

Amen to that. Fool the conservatives into silence and spend like a flamin liberal. Somehow I don't think that is what most Bush backers voted for.

Professor Bainbridge explains his reasons for distrust of the "Trust us" mantra:
The lesson of other Republican nominees without such fixed views -- Harry Blackmun, Mr. Souter, Anthony Kennedy -- is that they always drift to the left once they get on the Court."
Senator John Cornyn, who knows Miers well, has been quoted as saying that "She is obviously not a Scalia or a Thomas." Isn't a Scalia or Thomas precisely what Bush promised us? I'm starting to lose track of the number of promises Bush made to his base and has now broken.
