Our conservative president

Robert Novak reports: President Bush will go to Pittsburgh April 19 on a rescue mission attempting to save four-term Sen. Arlen Specter, who faces an increasingly serious conservative challenge from Rep. Pat Toomey in the April 27 Pennsylvania Republican primary.

So, George Delano is now out actively campaigning against eminently electable conservative Republicans. I’m sure this will be defended as a necessary act of incumbent protection, but it should demonstrate rather clearly the man’s principles, or rather, lack of them.*

Granted, John Francois wouldn’t be content with only campaigning against Toomey, he’d also want to campaign against the Highlander – who once recommended turning to Scottish law to discipline Bill Clinton – but that’s hardly a point of massive ideological superiority now, is it.

A pox on both their houses!

* To be fair, he never claimed to be an actual conservative, only a compassionate one. And we all know what it means when you insert an adjective in front of the noun.
