New Supreme Court Pick Angers The Usual Suspects
I have a feeling that John Roberts knows what he's getting into, so I don't think we have to worry too much about him folding under Democratic attacks and slanders. NARAL isn't happy because he argued that Roe v. Wade should be overturned. Newsflash to NARAL: John Roberts was a lawyer at the time. What do lawyers do? The argue their client's case, as Judge Roberts did for George H.W. Bush in this instance. So, NARAL obviously has a problem with lawyers who do their job.
Slightly above that, the article gets a quote from Senator Dick "Springfield? I can't recall ever living there" Durbin, stating that he wants to ensure that Judge Roberts has "mainstream values." Basically, Durbin wants to give yet another nominee a political test. I suggest that Senator Durbin also continue his line of questioning to ensure whether or not he has ever stepped inside a church for something other than political gain. If we're going to have an abortion test, he might as well have a religious test to determine whether or not he believes in God. I certainly wonder if Senator Durbin does.
John at Marathon Pundit has some good opinions on Dick Durbin, and links to an interesting article about Durbin in the Republican-run Illinois Leader.
