What George hath wrought

Robert Novak writes:

Sen. Arlen Specter, who moved right to stave off a conservative challenge in this year’s Pennsylvania Republican primary, took a sharp left turn in a general election debate last weekend. Noting that he is in line to become chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Specter promised: “I can bring centrist judges to the bench.” This contrasted with his primary campaign promise to back all of George W. Bush’s judicial nominees.

Vote for George Bush, because he’s going to nominate centrist judges of whom Arlen approves… that’s got to have loads of appeal to Christian conservatives who still harbor the hope that Bush work to overturn Roe vs Wade. Of course, nearly everyone has forgotten by now that Bush personally interceded in the Republican senatorial nomination to ensure that Specter would stay in office.
