Do We Need to Keep this a Federal Case?

Terry Eastland, publisher of the Weekly Standard, weighs in with doubts about Republican triumphalism regarding the take-over of the US Civil Rights Commission. Eastland's main contention is that the need for a standing civil rights commission is over. I think Eastland is probably right. The Standard in election mode was willing to talk about a new kind of conservative, that is, a big-gov conservative. As a means of triangulating, it's very clever, but it's a dangerous game to keep loading the federal gov't's guns just because right now Republicans are in office. I'm glad to see Eastland and others starting to criticize Bush as well as other Republicans for giving into the "Hudge" appeal so easily (in Chesterton's terms "Hudge" is big gov't while "Gudge" is big business).
