Ok, Hugh Hewitt has mostly convinced me that I was over-eager in my desire to prevent Senator Arlen Specter from gaining the chairmanship of the Senate Judicial committee. Mr. Hewitt thinks such an upset would be a Phyrric victory at best, and would unnecessarily disrupt the confirmation process. He says that we should wait to see if Senator Specter actually does start obstructing nominees before we throw him to the wolves. Sigh... ok! But the wolves are so hungry. Maybe that's the point... Republicans shouldn't overplay their hand just because they've got some good hole cards.
The guys at Power Line agree.
