Here's a twist -- Pat Robertson threatens GOP Senators who oppose Miers:

On today's "700 Club" broadcast, the Rev. Pat Robertson responded to criticism from the Right regarding the Miers nomination and also offered a stern warning to those conservative senators who might be thinking of voting against her. Rev. Robertson suggested that people should look at who is supporting Miers before they doubt her conservative credentials. He named James Dobson, the Rev. Jerry Falwell, Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention, Jay Sekulow of the Robertson-founded American Center for Law and Justice, and himself as proof of support for Miers' nomination from the Right. Robertson concluded by noting: "These so-called movement conservatives don't have much of a following, the ones that I'm aware of. And you just marvel, these are the senators, some of them who voted to confirm the general counsel of the ACLU to the Supreme Court, and she was voted in almost unanimously. And you say, `now they're going to turn against a Christian who is a conservative picked by a conservative President and they're going to vote against her for confirmation.' Not on your sweet life, if they want to stay in office.

Hmm. I guess Robertson is shooting across the bow of Brownback and others like him.

Wonder what "Movement" Conservatives think about that?
