PLATONIC SHILLDOM….In a New York Times op-ed today, Hugh Hewitt takes on conservatives who opposed the Harriet Miers nomination:

The right’s embrace in the Miers nomination of tactics previously exclusive to the left ? exaggeration, invective, anonymous sources, an unbroken stream of new charges, television advertisements paid for by secret sources ? will make it immeasurably harder to denounce and deflect such assaults when the Democrats make them the next time around.

I guess that’s it, then. There’s literally nothing that Hugh is embarrassed to say in the service of his cause. He has reached Platonic shilldom.
