Dobson says too much... or is he lying?

After last week's curious pronouncement by Focus on the Family's James Dobson that he knows things about Harriet Miers "that [he] probably shouldn't know," members of the Senate Judiciary Committee (who should know) are making motions toward extracting that information from the good doctor. They have this funny notion that elected representatives ought to be privy to the same information that most favored conservative leaders have.

The Chairman of the Committee, Republican Arlen Specter, wants to know whether Dobson was tipped off by, surprise surprise, Karl Rove. Democrat Charles Schumer said that Dobson should testify at Miers' hearings.

John Aravosis comments: "Schumer and Specter agreeing on something. God this must be a great day to be a Conservative. Forty years of work and it comes down to this?"

Or: "What if Dobson is lying?" (Americablog)
