Are Conservatives Waking Up?

Myopic Zeal quotes RedState.org about a Congressional appropriation of $223 million to an Alaskan bridge construction project.

I agree with RedState.org:
If the Democrats had engaged in this level of wasteful spending, every Conservative in America would be raising their voice. We must not do less when the Republicans act like Democrats, lest we been seen - rightly - as political hacks having no principles, only concerned with power. The price of silence is hypocrisy.
I also agree with this excerpt. Our representatives need to know our concerns about spending excesses, and if they don't represent us, we should replace them.

Heustis: Three strikes against John Roberts

In Three strikes against John Roberts, Reed Heustis evaluates remarks of Supreme Court Nominee John Roberts regarding the right to life and how faithful he would be in applying the Constitution.

Here is an excerpt of a concise commentary:
If Roberts will strictly interpret the Constitution, then why does he fail to interpret Article I, Section 1 strictly? The most strict interpretation of that section would exclude any rationalization that Supreme Court decisions are somehow “settled law.”
Here's a little secret for you. That tiny three-letter-word that you find in Article I, Section 1, "all," actually means exactly that: all! A strict interpretation would mean the same.

Moreover, Perkins' statement that Roberts "will not legislate from the bench" is totally unintelligible in light of the fact that Roberts implicitly believes that the bench may legitimately make law.
