Conservative hyprocrisy?

Sen. Schumer and other Democratic senators have cited the criticism -- and subsequent withdrawal -- of Harriet Miers as evidence of conservative hypocrisy.

In response, consider the following from an editorial in The Hill, 11/1/05:

“A … bogus argument among liberals is that Miers’s withdrawal makes it impossible to argue the nominee should be given an up-or-down vote. The GOP case is that judicial filibusters are wrong; that’s very different in principle from suggesting that no nominee should withdraw or be withdrawn to avoid humiliating defeat.”
