'Not One Dime' On MS-NBC

Ian at the Political Teen has video of MS-NBC's Connected Coast to Coast, where the Not One Dime post I wrote yesterday (not today, Tony!) got major airplay. The segment was, I think, very fair and deliberately balanced and worth the download time even if you're on dial-up.

Ornery, one of the blogs featured on the segment, posed this scenario for its readers: President Hillary Clinton and a Democratic Senate majority in 2009. My answer to that will be the same as it would have been for 214 years -- if that's what the voters want, then they will get the judicial confirmations that match. It's really that simple, and it always has been.

To answer one last question posed by an e-mailer after the segment aired, even if MS-NBC considers me a stalwart conservative, I consider myself center-right. I don't oppose gay marriage, although I don't exactly support it either, and I don't support the death penalty at all, for anything. I believe in a strong defense and erring on the side of personal freedoms whenever possible, as opposed to government control. Fiscally and internationally, I'm rock-solid conservative, and I think I'm less so socially. I believe that judges should stick to applying the laws passed by the legislature and quit developing laws on their own accord. But for an overall description, conservative works for me.
