It's hard to know what to make of the Roberts nomination, but anything that pisses off Ann Coulter is probably a good thing. (I also have to admit that I liked her line about the fact that "Roberts has gone through 50 years on this planet without ever saying anything controversial [is] just unnatural." I suppose you can't get much more conservative than that.

But my overall sense is that the Roberts nomination provides a damn good piece of evidence that Thomas Frank got it right: that the radical rightists really are a bunch of dupes for supporting Bush.
