Wednesday, December 14, 2005I find it amazing that James Dobson and his ilk think that homophobia and abortion are more central to Christ's teachings than compassion for the poor. I'm just glad that the Washington Post has deigned to point it out.
But if you haven't had your fill of "conservative" two-facedness, watch the upcoming review of the Texas re-districting by the Supreme Court. I'm with Colorado Luis - I'm not so optimistic that the Court is going to overturn the DeLay plan. But it will be interesting to see how the "traditionalists" on the court will justify the re-writing of the political rules. Drawing district lines after the census has been the custom for a very, very long time. Any genuine institutional conservative (a la Edmund Burke) would be very suspicious of ending such a tradition. But then no conservative has any respect for political institutions anymore, except when they can manipulate them for their own advantage.
