Why the Miers nomination is an admission of the failure of conservatism

Here’s an excellent piece by Cenk Uygur on why the nomination of Miers represents the recognition that, at some deep level, the American people don’t agree with the conservative movement:

“Name one liberal or moderate judge who has ever been rejected from the Supreme Court because they were outside the American mainstream. There aren’t any. I suppose a judge could be too liberal for the Supreme Court, but no one has even approached this theoretical barrier. On the other hand, Republican presidents play hide and go seek with their nominee’s points of view on a consistent basis because they are afraid Americans will be scared off by what they really believe.”
